Five Star Dealership's Sand & Sawdust Festival 2014
Ocean Shores, WA

June 27-29, 2014 ~ The annual Five Star Dealership's Sand & Sawdust Festival was held over the weekend. The weather was lovely with sun and some clouds and warm days. The Team Competition for the sand sculptures did not turn out so well this year because the event overseers did not look at the tide tables and so, the teams did not even get to finish before the tides came in and started to ruin their progress. But we still were able to see some of the works of sand art. The Singles Division was done at different venues -- the Convention Center, the Canterbury Inn and the Playtime Family Fun Center.

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. Competitions took place from 9-4 on Friday and Saturday and 8-1 on Sunday. The Awards Ceremony and Auction 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! I personally liked the Donald Duck and the Lion wood carving (see picture below).

Additional activities inside and outside the Convention Center included approximately 60+ Food and Craft Vendors.
