Playing in the Sand


Playing in the sand is a fond memory for many, going back to childhood memories of building sand castles while hearing the ocean waves crash behind you.  For some, this childhood obsession has never died.  The Siesta Key Crystal Classic Master Sand Sculpting Competition is the perfect venue for these folks!  In just 24 hours, the beach is transformed into an art gallery, inspiring awe and amazement by thousands of spectators.  It is an amazing sight to behold on our already amazing and beautiful Siesta Key beach.  This competition began in 2010, and was the result of a collaboration between master sand sculptor and Siesta Key resident, Brian Wigelsworth along with representatives from the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce, Sarasota County Parks and Recreation, Mote Marine Laboratory, and the Sarasota Convention and Visitors Bureau.  Organizers believed this event could have a beneficial economic impact on the community, and they were right!  Over half of the 35,000+ attendees come from outside of Sarasota County.  This year’s event will take place November 9th – 12th. Here is the schedule of events:

You don’t have to be a professional to participate!  There is also an amateur contest, which is an exciting opportunity to have some fun with family and friends! Click here for details:
