Living Green Olympia: August 2011

Sand in the City - Sculptures in Process in Olympia!

Yesterday we went down to see how the sand sculptures were shaping up at this year's Sand in the City event in downtown Olympia.  Friday is always the day that the teams are busy creating these amazing works of sand art and then Saturday and Sunday the sculptures are all on display to the public.

 

Sand in the City 2011

The teams were hurrying to finish up their work before the judging began, but it was clear that there are some really cool entries again this year.  I can't wait to go back down tomorrow to check out the finished sand sculptures, as well as all of the fun things available for kids. 

 

Sand in the City 2011

My granddaughter is looking forward to the touch tank where she can pat or even pick up some sea creatures; dig and make her own sand creations in the giant "sand box"; swirl the bubble wands around in the breeze off the bay.  And just seeing the beautiful Budd Inlet, with sailboats gliding along - what a perfect setting for 2011 Sand in the City in Olympia!
