Five Star Dealerships Sand & Sawdust Festival 2010
Ocean Shores, WA

June 25-27, 2010 ~ The annual Five Star Dealerships Sand & Sawdust Festival was held over the weekend and it was a great success. All three days enjoyed some sunshine with fair temperatures. There were some very detailed and awesome works of sand art. The winner of the Masters Division was "Prehistoric Golf." My personal favorite of the Masters Division was "Surfing Tikis." My other favorites were "Forclawsed," a light twist on all of the foreclosures this country has seen; "Lunch Brake," "The Great Flood," "Toy Story 3," "Once Upon A Time" and "The Camp." Check out the pictures below with the winners listed.
The crisp cedar smells permeated the air at the Woodcarving Competitions in front of the Convention Center, which always produces many pieces of art. Master Chainsaw Carvers from around the world and the United States compete for thousands of dollars in prizes. Competition took place from 9-4 on Friday and Saturday and 8-1 on Sunday. The Awards Ceremony was held on Sunday at 4pm. You will have to wait until next year to have a chance to take home a piece of original art!
Additional activities at the Convention Center included approximately 100 Food and Craft Vendors.
This is a must see event of the year (next to 4th of July)!

Many people packed the beach to view the sandcastles, ride horses, fly kites and to just enjoy the beach.
