Siesta Key Beach with it’s  ultra-fine, white quartz sand earned the  No. 1 beach designation in 2011 by Dr. Beach. It turns out this awesome sand is also great for sand-sculpting. Come meet the artists and see their fabulous creations. Pictures are not able to capture the details and craftmanship that are displayed at this event. Check it out!
