8:30 a.m., Sept. 24
U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge and 3D Art Exposition
A four-day event for the whole family. We're building a beach high above the water -- bringing 300 tons of sand to the 'B' Street cruise ship terminal pier with our Big Bay on the West and downtown's castles in the sky on the East.
World Master Sand Sculptors come from Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Canada -- and more exotic places such as Latvia and Singapore -- to challenge the best in the U.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...
- When: Monday, September 1, 2014, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Cost: $7 - $18
