Sandblast to include children's art display

   Sandblast 2000, Duvall's annual sandsculpting and art festival at McCormick Park, will include a display of art by local children. The festival takes place this weekend, July 28, 29, and 30.

   Art will be displayed along the old railroad grade between the two sections of the park. A limited number of late entrants will be allowed to participate, according to art committee member Martin Chaney.

   Interested groups and individuals need to submit a registration form. There are no age or other limitations on who can participate.

   "If someone wants to express their inner child by participating, or if a family or neighborhood wants to put together a display as a group, I think that would be wonderful," said Chaney. Anyone who would like to display their own art work should call Chaney at 425-880-4220.

   McCormick Park is located on the east bank of the Snoqualmie River in Duvall. From Main Street (Hwy. 203), look for the parking lot at NE Stephens Street between the Duvall Café and the Duvall Chiropractic Clinic.

   Sandblast 2000's headline attraction is the construction of a large sand sculpture, beginning Friday, July 28. Sandblast 2000 is sponsored by the Duvall Arts Commission, the Duvall Foundation for the Arts, and the King County Arts Commission.
