Yoshida’s 12th Annual Sand in the City is coming in about 2 weeks. Four hundred and fifty tons of sand, fifty thousand spectators. Sand sculptures like you’d only ever see at the beach (thus the name, natch). There will be other events too, vendors, food, and Kids on the Block puppetry; the proceeds go to Kids on the Block.
While the practice site is on NW Quimby and 23rd, the actual display and competition will be at the Pioneer Courthouse Square.
The weather looks great; today the weather looks sunny and 80 degrees for that weekend. Take MAX to the Square and enjoy the sandcastles without the traffic— or the two hour drive!
