First let me say, I guess a better word to use is "sand sculpting" since most of these amazing creations aren't really castles.
Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota is know for it's powder white sand, which is 99% pure quartz. It makes the ideal material to sculpt with and every year talented artists from around the world flock to Siesta Key to let their imaginations go wild, as they vie for first place in the competition. It's also a great day of food, fun and music for the whole family.
Naturally, an event like this is very popular, so to beat crowds and avoid traffic take the Siesta Key Breeze Trolley service, run by SCAT.
Here's all the info for this year's competition:
