One of the Suncoast’s most popular beachfront
events has announced the dates for this year. The 2018 Siesta Key Crystal Classic International
Sand Sculpting Festival will take place from Friday Nov. 9 through Monday the 12th. The event showcases works of expert sand sculptors
worldwide. There is a “Quick Sand” competition, sand
sculpting lessons, an amateur sculpting competition, along with music, food and drinks. It draws a crowd, so to make it easier, Sarasota
County Area Transit offers daily bus service to the event or attendees can take the Siesta
Key Breeze free trolley from Turtle Beach or from Siesta Village.
