The 2011 Siesta Key Crystal Classic Master Sandsculpting Competition is under way on beautiful Siesta Key in Sarasota Florida. This marks the 2nd annual event and the community is looking forward to it's continued success. The #1 beach in the United States is a favorite of many of the artists as it represents the best sand available for their works of art.
24 Master sandsculptors will be competing for the chance to be named the best of the best at this years 2011 Siesta Key Crystal Classic Master Sandsculpting Competition.
The event takes place at Siesta Key Public Beach. Parking may be a challenge so please visit the event website for detailed information on where you can park in order to take a shuttle.
Admission is $5 and is well worth it. There is food, live music and plenty for the family to do.
I will be heading out to Siesta Key today or Sunday to admire the amazing sand sculptures and will be posting photos within a few days so please check back!
