Tuolumne, CA — The 66th Annual Lumber Jubilee in Tuolumne crowned its new queen Friday night.

After a rigorous obstacle course, including jumping over logs, starting a chainsaw, hammering a nail into a log, and throwing firewood over a large log into a wheel barrel then racing the hefty load to the finish line — 14-year-old Sarah Caldera earned the title of 2015 Lumber Jubilee Queen.

Caldera competed against two other contestants, Makayla Wyhlidko and Anna Morgan. Additionally, all had to give a speech be able to name three types of wood, which Caldera passed with flying-colors.

The festivities continue Saturday with a parade at 10 a.m. and the carnival begins at 11. Other events on Saturday include arm wrestling contests, a junior tug of war and a hot dog eating contest. Sunday will also feature several logging events including ax throwing, crosscut sawing contests and conclude with the annual tug of war.
