Free, fun and family-friendly - the second annual Sandsations event is officially underway in the parking lot of the Pioneer Arena.
Featuring four local - but international-award-winning - sand sculptors, the event will allow folks to see massive sculptures created in a remarkably short time span, according to organizer Pat Field.
"They start carving today. They each have one helper, and they're incorporating this year's theme: Man and Nature Together," he said. "They sculpt from the top down, so when they reach the base, it's done."
