Sand Rapids

At Sand Rapids, sand carvers will literally turn tons of sand into beautiful Grand Rapids-inspired sculptures. Kids of all ages can ‘dig-in’ in the DMGR sandbox and make their own “sand-art” to take home – all free of charge. Community groups will compete in our amateur sand sculpting competition, and our master carvers and local community leaders will crown the winning group of local-themed inspired sculptures.
