Workers Construct Massive Sand Sculpture For Flugtag


TINTS ARE UP AND SO IS THE STAGE, AND THAT IS JUST THE BEGINNING. IT IS THE THREE RIVERS REGATTA AND DAVE CRAWLEY HAS A SNEAK PEEK. Reporter: REGATTA PREPARATIONS TAKE PLACE ON LAND, THE STAGE IS UP AT POINT STATE PARK. WORKERS PREPARE FOR THE RED BULL FLUGTAG AND THE FERRIS WHEEL STANDS READY TO SPIN RIDERS THROUGH DAZZLING LIGHTS. BUT FOR IN THE MASSIVE YET METICULOUS SAND SCULPTURE IS THE BEST PART OF ALL. SENSATIONAL SAND SCULPTURES BACK. IT IS FUN TO TRY TO CATCH EXPRESSION. Reporter: AND JILL HARRIS SAYS IT CELEBRATES THE REGATTA’S 40th ANNIVERSARY. WHAT WE WANTED TO DO IS SHOW A CRUD OF PEOPLE WHO ARE — CRATED OF PEOPLE WHO ARE — CROWD OF PEOPLE WHO ARE WATCHING THE RACES, SO YOU’LL SEE THE BRIDGES IN THE BACKGROUND AND ON EITHER SIDE YOU’LL SEE THE CROWDS OF PEOPLE WATCHING THE RACE. Reporter: THEY BEGIN WITH 150-TONS OF RIVER SAND. SCULPTORS START AT THE TOP AND WORK THEIR WAY DOWN. SAND SCULPTING IS AN EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS. FIRST YOU HAVE THE ROUGHING IN OF THE FIGURE AND THEN YOU HAVE THE GRADUAL REFINEMENT, AND FINALLY THE FINISHED PRODUCT. AND THEY DO IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THEY RARELY MAKE MISTAKES, BUT IF THEY DO, — WHEN I DON’T LIKE A SPACE, I’LL JUST WIPE IT CLEAN AND PUT ANOTHER ONE THERE WITH SOME MUD. BUT IF SOMETHING BILL FALLINGS OFF, LIKE, FOR EXAMPLE, THIS WHOLE HEAD, THEN I’M KIND OF IN A PROBLEM AND I HAVE TO MAKE A SMALLER FIGURE OR A CHILD OR SOMETHING ELSE, JUST BE CREATIVE. Reporter: AND THOUGH IT IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS, SPECTATORS ALREADY LIKE WHAT THEY SEE. VERY DETAILED. IT IS WONDERFUL. Reporter: BUT WHEN THE REGATTA COMES TO AN END, THE SCULPTURE COMES DOWN. IT IS PART OF IT. IT IS TEMPORARY ART MEANT TO BE ENJOYED FOR THE MOMENT.
