Sand Sculpting Contest August 29-September 1, 2014
1140 North Harbor Drive
For more information & ticket information please visit: http://www.ussandsculpting.com/event-info/
It’s a 4-day extravaganza for the whole family! At the San Sculpting Contest Event they are building a beach high above the water, bringing 300 tons of sand to the ‘B’ Street cruise ship terminal pier, with the bay on the West and downtown’s castles in the sky on the East. It’s been called the most creative atmosphere in the world. There’s nothing else like it anywhere.
World Master Sand Sculptors come from Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands and Canada, from exotic places like Latvia and Singapore, to challenge the best in the U.S. Their 3-dimensional art is astounding and the sculptures weigh over 10 tons each.
There’s live entertainment (big bands, singers and more), a sand box and rides for kids, a dozen gourmet food trucks, a great view of the bay, tall ships and cannon battles.
