New Smyrna Beach Sand Art Festival sand castles with moat

This is one event you don’t want to miss. As an admiror of “all things” art, sand sculptures are on the top of my list! Sand has got to be one of the most fragile media used by artists.This is why I hold sand sculptors in such high regard.

Sand and water: these are the key elements in sand art, and there’s no short supply here in New Smyrna Beach! With sand so fine and beautiful clear water, it is the ideal combination for a fun, creative day of sandy shenanigans!
