It’s never too early to plan a sand sculpture for the annual Sandblast Sand Sculpture Festival, which will be held once again at Greenwich Point.

The Greenwich Department of Parks and Recreation and the Greenwich Arts Council will co-host the popular event. Sandblast is a fun day at the beach, focusing on the creative aspect of sand sculpting.

Participants need only bring shovels, pails, and any tools to create a sand sculpture. Participants will also need to check-in on the beach under the pavilion to get a flag to mark their sculpture. This year’s event will include live music, as well as a professional artist and sculptor on site.

The event is Saturday, July 27 starting at 12:00pm (Rain date, Sunday, July 28 at 1:00pm). For rain date information, please call 203-861-6100.

Sponsors are Meli-Melo Juice Bar of Greenwich and Beachmate. All have provided special prizes and giveaways for participants.

The Greenwich Arts Council promotes the arts by nurturing artists and building audiences.

Don’t forget your sun block, shovels, and sculpting tools!
