World’s Top Sand-Sculpting Company to Create Giant Sand Sculpture for 2019 Monterey County Fair, Aug. 29-Sept. 2


MONTEREY, CA. (June 5, 2019) — The world’s foremost sand-sculpting company, Sandscapes, will create a giant sand sculpture reflecting the theme of this year’s Monterey County Fair, Aug. 29-Sept. 2, 2019.

The sand sculpture will feature sea otters on a roller coaster, reflecting the fair’s theme, “High Tides and Carnival Rides.”

Sandcapes emerged in the mid-’80s from the competitive sand sculpture scene on the beaches of Southern California. Originally performing at corporate events and summer beach festivals, demand soon exploded as Sandscapes’ sculptors formed the leading edge as the world’s first full-time professional sand sculptors.

In addition to numerous national, international, and regional sand sculpture titles, Sandscapes holds 12 separate World Sand Sculpting Championships titles. Averaging 40 sculptures annually, their sculptors have created over 1,000 sculptures at major venues around the world.
