Greenwich's favorite annual sand sculpture contest had Tod's Point Beach literally covered in creativity on Sunday, July 30th!
One day after the possibility of inclement weather caused Sandblast 2017 to be postponed to its rain date, the sun was shining, the skies were a cloudless blue, the temperature was just-right, and more than 200 people (comprising over 50 teams) were molding the shoreline sand into a wide variety of eye-catching forms!
The science of the art of sand sculpturing was in full motion - with some families using a variety of innovative tools and techniques while others opted for the old-fashioned beach buckets and shells formula!
The concessions stands were active with brisk beach-cuisine business while children’s music duo Jay and Ray were performing at the park's southern pavilion.
Sand Blast 2017 was co-sponsored by the Greenwich Arts Council and and the town’s Department of Parks and Recreation.
All participants received a participation award in the form of a gift certificate to Meli-Melo of Greenwich.
Living Greenwich had two of our team members on the scene capturing images...
