Seize the King

Seize the King

Seize the King

Who will rule next? Richard (the Third?), deformed and ruthlessly ambitious, is a “devilishly charming con man” and a “grand negotiator.” Now that the throne is empty, he will stop at nothing to grab it. “But even if he can be stopped, who can ensure it will never happen again?”

Sand Sculpting Challenge

Sand Sculpture Challenge

U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge

Master sand sculptors come from the Netherlands, Italy, Canada, Latvia, Russia, and Tasmania to challenge the best in the U.S. in carving sculptures made from only sand and water. These hand-made sculptures can reach up to 15 feet tall and can weigh over 10,000 pounds. The masters begin carving their sculptures days in advance of the event’s opening to the public, but they’ll still be in action early Friday evening and even on Saturday until they finish carving at 2 pm. Finished works may be seen after 2 pm on Saturday, and all day on Sunday and Monday. The sculptures will be lit up at night on Saturday and Sunday.

Ice Cube

Ice Cube
Past Event

Ice Cube

Few music figures have gone from grizzly bear to teddy bear and back again the way Ice Cube has. As one of the main songwriters in N.W.A. (a credit he later had to file a lawsuit over), he was the dreaded scourge of hip-hop haters, a status that grew with later solo albums such as AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted. Hollywood aspirations landed him in movies like Ride Along, giving him a second career as a comedic family movie star. But the N.W.A. film bio and his work on that soundtrack seems to have inspired him to take his music back to the studio and on the road. The final concert of this summer’s Racetrack Series begins shortly after the final race of the day.
