Any guest that visits us between November 18-27, 2016 is in for a treat as the American Sandsculpting Championships are being held just down the road from us. From 10 am- 5 pm every day you can experience the sandy magic of artists working their individual projects. Along with this are the many vendors, sand sculpting demonstrations, kids activity area, flying colors, bounce houses, slides and much more!
This is the 30th anniversary of the event and event organizers promise that the 2016 event will be even more exciting than ever. This is the largest sand sculpting competition in the State and in late November, it’s all yours to explore! The best part? It’s only a couple minutes away from your cozy home away from home with us at Beach Shell Inn.
Enjoy world-class art by 16 sculptors from three different continents participated last year. There will also be an amateur contest which is also spectacular! This year there will be 25 master sand sculptors and over 1000 tons of sand.
This year for the first time visitors will be able to purchase a VIP experience on the beach in an air conditioned area and beer garden with private restrooms. The Seminole Casino Hotel Paradise Pavilion will be serving up an open bar and a special all you can eat menu with television monitors with sporting and holiday events. VIP Pavilion tickets will go for $40 for the day and can be purchased here.
The Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce puts this event on every year and is not missed by locals and travelers alike.
