U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge

Members of the “Archisand” team, from Laguana Hills, compete in the Cool California Carvers Class (9 teams of 3 professionals each carving for 2 days), are busy early on Sunday morning carving away on San Diego’s B street Pier. The U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge organizers brought in some 300 tons of sand to the ‘B’ Street cruise ship terminal pier.

In another class, World Master Sand Sculptors have come from Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands and Canada, and elsewhere to challenge the best in the U.S. Eleven master sculptors carved for 4 days and created beautiful three-dimensional art, some of which weighed in at over 10 tons.

Scripps Pier Moonlight Walk

The Scripps Institution of Oceanography invites San Diegans to attend the Moonlight Pier Walks which take place on the pier during the summer months. The walk allowed attendees a tour of the Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier, which is usually closed to the public. The pier is used by scientists, students and aquarium staff for a variety of research projects. It also serves as a platform to collect local marine life and deploy small boats and oceanographic instruments.
