Sand Shuffle 2013 – Ft. Myers Beach

As part of the Annual Sand Sculpting Championship at Ft. Myers Beach, Florida, event organizers have added the new “Sand Shuffle,” a passport program with 5 participating locations throughout the area including: Seminole Casino of Immokalee, Edison & Ford Winter Estates, DiamondHead Resort, Fish-Tale Marina and the Wyndham Garden Hotel Fort Myers Beach. Prior to the event, each location will have a two ton of sand sculpture sculpted by one of the participating artists. When visitors arrive at each location, they can get their passport stamped at the designated area. They are also encouraged to take photos with the Sand Sculptures and share on Facebook and Instagram at #sandshuffle.

Kids can also take part in the Sand Shuffle Scavenger Hunt. With each sculpture there is a question to answer. Once visitors have visited at least three of the five sand sculptures and had their passport stamped or scavenger hunt question answered correctly, they’ll be eligible to enter the drawings for great prize giveaways from our participating Sand Shuffle Partners. To enter, completed passports can be brought to the main entrance of the 2013 American Sand Sculpting Championships held November 22 to December 1, 2013.
