Oregon Pavilion

A carnival of timbering was staged along a stretch of the Flushing River by a troupe of 25 men an women from the Northwest. It featured climbing, chopping, birling (log-rolling), jousting from logs, double-bladed ax throwing and clowning. Spars of Douglas fir 120 feet tall were set on the bank and used for many of the feats. Bleachers seated 1,250 and the admission was $1.00 for adults; 75 cents for children.

Beneath the bleachers was a display of Oregon industries and a souvenir shop.
