Rise n’ shine on June 24th for Studio 659’s 2nd Annual Sand Sculpting Competition at Whihala Beach. This year's theme… 'Enchanted Forest'!
Teams and participants will build from 7am — 12pm, this year, with the opportunity to witness breathtaking sand sculpting by World Champion Professional Sculptor, Carl Jara.
Carl holds nine World Championship medals, at least three dozen medals from other contests, and has been featured twice on Sand Blasters on the Travel Channel™. He’s worked and competed in eleven countries, more than two dozen states, and continues to carve out his living in the sand!
His next stop… Whiting!
If you want to see some incredible sand sculpting, while also having fun and building your own masterpiece with friends and family, Whihala Beach is the place to be on June 24th!
Participants use sand to build a sculpture that reflects the theme.
This year's sculptures will be judged against three criteria: Theme, Creativity & Artistic Merit. Participants must bring their own sculpting equipment.
Only sand and natural debris found on the beach may be used in the construction of the sculptures. Water may be drawn from the Lake. No adhesives or any other material that disrupts the ecological environment will be permitted. Decisions of the organizers and judges are final.
