Live Like a Local: Fun in the Sun at the 2012 SCAD Sand Art Festival!

Every year, Tybee Island’s beautiful North Beach is host to so amazing things. The sand of North Beach is transformed into a surreal landscape you have to see to believe! From wild sea creatures to elaborate castles, anything and everything that can be made out of sand could be there! This year, the day is May 4, 2012, so make plans to be on Tybee Island! Come out to North Beach and enjoy the imagination and creative skills of SCAD students in the Savannah College of Art and Design’s 2012 Sand Art Festival!

It’s always a good time, just check out the pictures from past festivals. The even better news? It’s free and open to the public! Come join in the sand sculpting, or just sit back and enjoy the spectacle. There will be something for everyone! The fun starts at 10 a.m. and will run through 2 p.m. Stroll the beach and enjoy all the entries in each category: sand castles, sand sculptures, sand relief, Gary’s Reef Best Underwater Creature, and wind sculptures.  Judging will take place and then awards will be announced about 4 p.m.

Just some of the amazing sculptures from past years! Check out the gallery on the festival website to see more!

For those wanting to join in the sculpting fun, a few items you may want to bring along are: shovels, buckets, carving tools, and anything else you think you may need to get your sculpt on. And, of course, don’t forget your drinking water and a picnic lunch!  Check out the Directions and Parking page for the festival for all your information on getting to the festival, too!

Make a day of it and get some sand in your toes! Join us on Tybee’s North Beach for the 2012 SCAD Sand Art Festival. It’s going to be a blast!
