Treasure Island, Florida’s sand sculpture capital, hosts 10th Annual Sanding Ovations Masters Cup. All it takes is several tons of sand, plenty of water, and lots of imagination to build a masterpiece – at least for ten master sculptors who return to Treasure Island for the 9th annual Sanding Ovations Masters Cup Sand Sculpture Competition and Music Festival November 14-18, 2018. The competition is invitational, and has grown to be the largest masters competition in the Southeast United States. The masterful exhibition of sand sculpting talent at the world-class level, is naturally, the big appeal, with the top three sculptures and a People’s Choice sculpture awarded over $12,000 in cash prizes. The awards ceremony is at 7pm followed by a fireworks display at 10pm. The beach food court, and arts and crafts marketplace and three days of live music make Sanding Ovations a must-see event while visiting Treasure Island.
