By Barbara Ann Kelley,

There’s nothing like big sand castled and music on the beach to please everyone in the family. Pack up the kids and the sun screen and hit the road to Treasure Island’s Professional Sand Sculpting Competition & Music Festival this weekend, November 18-19, 2012.

The sand castles and sculptures are big enough to make even the adult stare in amazement. There even a fireworks display Saturday night at 9:30pm. FYI-Sunset is 5:37pm.
