Let's Watch the 82nd Annual Great Sand Sculpture Contest

Come see the 82nd annual Great Sand Sculpture Contest with the ladies of our group. There will be a festival with live music & food vendors so there's lots of fun to be had!

Let's meet in front of Ripples at 1pm. We will wait 15 minutes before we start walking.  If you are not there by 1:15, you can call me and I will tell you where we are when you call.  POST A MESSAGE IF YOU WANT TO CARPOOL IN BECAUSE I'M SURE PARKING WILL BE A CHALLENGE

This special contest brings together families, community, and artists to celebrate Long Beach. Internationally recognized professional sculptors will build a remarkable centerpiece while amateur professionals and dozens of community teams will challenge each other for highly valued gift packages. If you want to compete, all of the details are at: http://greatsandsculpturecontest.splashthat.com/. The festival is happening both Saturday and Sunday, 10am-4pm,

If you can't make it, PLEASE cancel your RSVP. 

There are other meetup groups that will be there so we may strategize with them to hook up.

I'm thinking we can continue on for a meal afterwards if anyone wants.

    That was some kind of fun. It was a hot, sunny, hectic, but fun place. They even had a fair share of free stuff including avocado popsicles. Everyone from 8 minutes old to 80 years old was there, the sand art was spectacular and of course the company was awesome.

    Thanks Jody. Nice event loved being outdoors & @ the beach . Parking was a killer. I got there @ 11:30 & still had to drive around. It was worth it to hang out with you ladies. You all may not know it but you all have affected my life is such a positive way. I truly enjoy hanging out with you all. Thank you & have a blessed week.
