DON'T MISS QUICK SAND SPEED SCULPTING SHOW


 

 CANCELLED
FOR 2020
Bigger and Better
 AUG 6-8, 2021

The Friends of the Fort Gratiot Light regretfully announce the cancelation of Blue Water SandFest, which had been scheduled for August 7-9, 2020. Although a lot of planning has been done, and some funds have been raised through sponsorships, the majority of available sponsorship money in the community will and should be directed towards local and national relief efforts for the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to bringing the event back next year bigger and better than ever. The dates for SandFest next year are August 6-8, 2021. New events planned for this year will be added to next year’s event, including an arts & crafts show and Corn Hole competition.
