WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OF SAND SCULPTURE IN FEDERAL WAY HELD
OVER UNTIL OCTOBER 10TH (PDF)


(Federal Way, WA) The local director and the producers of The World Championship of Sand Sculpting in Federal Way are holding over the event due to popular demand.

"The rain’s really changed a lot of people’s plans," said Charlie Beaulieu, one of the event producers, "We’re getting calls and e-mails from all over saying they wished we could stay open longer so they could get here and see this once-in-a-lifetime art exhibit. By the very nature of the event, these same sculptors will never all be here again."

"We are also getting people through who want to come back and bring their families but couldn’t do it in time. We want as many people as possible to see this art, " he said, "so we decided to extend the date a week to accommodate the sand sculpture fans and others who haven’t been yet."

Sculptors from 17 nations have created a gallery of art that stretches for four-and-half acres. The completed works have awed thousands of visitors over the past three weeks. Master sculptors continue to do display carving throughout this week on pieces such as Michael Velling’s, "Dedicated to Liberty." Velling is expected this weekend.

The World Championship of Sand Sculpting is located four blocks north of the Commons Mall at 31510 20th Avenue South, Federal Way.

Tickets are:
Family of 4 Day Pass: $25,
Adults: $8.50,
Children over 4: $6.50
Seniors: $6.50.

Hours are 9AM - 7PM, Monday - Saturday, 10 - 6 Sunday.
