Sandscapes sculptors to build sand sculpture over three days leading up to the event on July 2, 2016

Spa Resort Casino will display a finished Sandscapes sand sculpture, which will be three days in the making, at Sandsational Summer, an outdoor festival with delicious food, drink, and live entertainment on July 2, 2016, at the corner of N. Indian Canyon and E. Andreas Road.

On July 2, the world just steps outside the Spa Resort Casino in downtown Palm Springs will be transformed into a beachside paradise from 1-6 p.m. with food vendors, bar service, a live band, kid friendly attractions, shaded spots with misters, and the debut of a spectacular Sandscapes sculpture sure to inspire awe that will take three days to build.

Sandsational_SRCasinoChampion sculptors from Sandscapes will be at work building a large sand sculpture outside Spa Resort Casino during the three days leading up to the Sandsational Summer event.  Based in California, Sandscapes creates eye-catching thrills for festival goers the world over and holds 12 separate World Sand Sculpting Championship titles.  Their intricate work will gradually reveal itself over the course of three days in the lead up to Sandsational Summer on July 2.  The finished Sandscapes sculpture will be on display during the event.

The outdoor fun at Sandsational Summer will culminate in a sandcastle competition during the event that will feature local businesses competing against one another for the grand prize of a $500 cash donation to the charity of their choice.

“Make this summer ‘Sandsational’ by enjoying a ‘day at the beach’ right here in downtown Palm Springs,” Spa Resort Casino Assistant General Manager Kari Stout-Smith said. “Join us as we kick off the Independence Day celebration a little early with some cool summer fun and cheer on your favorite businesses who will be out there working hard in support of their favorite charity to wow you with their sandcastle-building talents.”

General admission to the Sandsational Summer event on July 2 is $10; $5 for kids 12 and under.  Tickets are available for purchase on the Spa Resort Casino website at or in person at the Paradise Rewards Club.
