A Sand-tastic Adventure at Huntsville Botanical Garden

Sand-tasticSpring Break 2014 for the Huntsville Botanical Garden is getting covered in sand. As in 25 tons of sand-tastic sand!

Sand-tastic Fun!


Example from Sand Sculpture Company

All of that sand is going to be sculpted into a giant work of art by professional sand sculptors from the Sand Sculpture Company. This will be a one-of-a-kind custom piece just for the Botanical Garden. And it will be a nod to their upcoming exhibit “Alice’s Garden of Wonder”.

Watch the sculptors in action from March 22 – 30, 2014 during the Sand-tastic Work of Wonder event.

There are also sand themed events for children daily from 1:00 – 3:00 pm.

Check it out:

  • Saturday, March 22, and March 29 – Build a Sand Castle
  • Sunday, March 23, Ocean in a Bottle
  • Monday, March 24, Dig for Shells & Dinosaurs
  • Tuesday, March 25, Sand Mosaics
  • Wednesday, March 26, Sandbox Fairy Garden

Spring Break 2014 at the Garden


Past work from Sand Sculpture Company

Being able to watch the on-going progress of the sand sculpture and have something new and fun for the kids to do each day makes Huntsville Botanical Garden the place to be for Spring Break 2014.

It’s a unique and exciting event for Huntsville, but also a great way to enjoy the spring weather and fresh air. Lots of sand and sun are always a good idea!
