Kid Friendly Fun at Navarre Beach Sand Sculpting Festival!

Several years ago, during our annual fall beach retreat, we stumbled upon the Navarre Beach Sand Sculpting Festival. All I have to say is Wow, Wow, Wow! Amazing! Inspiring! Totally Cool! Wow, Wow, Wow!

Navarre Beach Sand Sculpting Festival

The annualĀ  Sand Sculpting Festival held at Navarre Beach, Florida is just over the horizon – September 27 – 29, 2013.

Since I’m a Texas Gal, I also have to give a shout-out to Sandcastle Days held on Padre Island, Texas – October 4 – 6, 2013.

My boys are in bed now but I can’t wait to show these pictures to them tomorrow” They’re going to love them! My favorite is the iguana!

The other sand sculptures were equally impressive. In their defense, these photos were snapped on the first day. Having said that, the iguana remained our favorite! It’s amazing what the artists can do with sand, water and some watery Elmer’s glue to hold it all together. They spray the sculpture with the watery Elmer’s glue to preserve it a bit longer.
