The U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge and 3D Art Exposition

Who doesn’t like sand or sand castles? Well the US Sand Sculpting and 3D Art Expo is coming to San Diego over Labor Day weekend. The cruise ship pier is going to be turned into a gigantic beach where you can go and check out some incredible works of art. From the website:

“We’re changing the name of America’s 8th largest city between Sep. 4th and Sept. 7th, 2015.  We’re calling it SAND iegoTM.  Not only that, 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.  It’s been called the most creative atmosphere in the world.  There’s nothing else like it anywhere.

World Master Sand Sculptors come from Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands and Canada, from exotic places like Latvia and Singapore, to challenge the best in the U.S.  Their 3-dimensional art is astounding.  You’ll fall in love with it.  But you can’t take it with you.  The sculptures weigh over 10 tons each and they’d ruin your lawn.  So we have over 1,000 works of art that you can fall in love with, buy and take home.”

There will be food trucks and live entertainment and sand! Professionals will even teach your children how to build sandcastles! Downtown San Diego is the place to be Labor Day weekend.
