The 2002 Sandblast Summer Arts Festival will be held on July 20 & 21 on the banks of the Snoqualmie River in Duvall's McCormick Park. A community sand sculpture will be created on the sandbar under the supervision of US Champion and world renowned Sand Sculpture Artist Kali Bradford.

   The stage will be busy with music and other entertainment from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
   Entertainment for this year will include Valley phenoms Roundabout, as well as Baby Gramps, Reggie Miles and the Cornucopia Concert Band. Local artists will be displaying and selling their art and crafts.
