Now at a new location, the Sand Sculpture Festival is back and will continue to be a fun family event for all ages.
Come out and do something creative in the sand, or just enjoy the beach and the spectacle. The event is free for spectators, but a $1-$5 sliding scale donation is encouraged to support Friends of the Dunes and the free education and conservation programs they provide to the public.
Every dollar donated gets you a people’s choice flag to vote for your favorite sculpture. To sign-up a team for the competition, visit friendsofthedunes.org or register on-site between 8 and 10 a.m. The fee for teams of 6 and less is $15 and teams of more than 6 is $20.
This year the festival will take place on Saturday, July 28 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at northern end of the Samoa Drag Strip. The best time to view sculptures is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and awards will be announced shortly after 1 p.m. Parking is limited and carpooling is encouraged. For more information or to register your team, please contact Friends of the Dunes at (707) 444-1397 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
