Parksville sand sculpting 2017

Randy and Val arrived Parksville for a week holiday. First stop was the annual sand sculpting competition.

Theme this year was Canada 150.

Maple leaves, trees and water were recurring themes as 29 competitors devoted their creativity to the theme of Canada 150 in the 2017 Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition at Parksville’s Community Park last weekend.

In the end, the winning entries were those that focused on Canada’s people — particularly those of its First Nations. …

Parksville sand sculpting competition honours Canada

Canadian Mosaic, a 360-degree series of pillars featuring five Canadian icons — Neil Young, Buffy St. Marie, Terry Fox, Chief Dan George and David Suzuki won a prize.

Excellent detail impresses me.

My brother liked best another winner, with an indigenous figure on one side and a uniformed Mountie on the other.

I voted for one called Little Iron Horse celebrating a certain breed of Canadian horses.
