2018 WinnersThe 2018 Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition in Parksville was a great success. We welcomed visitors from all over the world over opening weekend July 13-15. Visitors witnessed master sculptors carving sand to the theme of "Wild Things ~ From Here To The Galapagos." Twenty-nine competitors were allotted 30 hours to convert 325 yards of sand into sculptures based on this very broad theme.
