Sunsets, Sculptures and Lights In San Diego

We are very excited about being able to light up the sculptures each night. With the sunset and the city lights, combined with the sculptures It's going to be breathtaking!”

 U.S sand sculpting challenge and dimensional art exposition

U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge & Dimensional Art Exposition is coming up this labor day weekend, August 31st - September 3rd and will have a variety of food trucks, sand filled activities for kids, art for your garden and home, and amazing sculptures on display. What more can there be!?

Actually, there is one more thing! U.S Sand Sculpting hours of operation will now be open later than last year to allow the sculptures to be illuminated at night for everyone to see! The sand sculptures and the entire Broadway Pier will be glowing each night for guests to experience, enjoy the sunset and views of the city!
