Treasure Island Sanding Ovations

Sanding Ovations Sand Castle Festival

Published on 11/22/20: As we continue our tour around the Tampa Bay area, today we ventured to Sanding Ovations in Treasure Island. This is the annual sand castle building festival where professionals in the industry come to build huge sculptures.

Between the bands and 70+ merchandise & food vendors setup on the beach, some may find it easy to lose track of the sand castles themselves, but don’t! After all, this is the 12th annual Sanding Ovations Master’s Cup and these are NOT your everyday sand castles! Most are the size of large vehicles and I can only imagine the time they took to construct.

This free sand sculpture and music festival is held annually in Treasure Island. If you’ve never been, make sure to check it out in 2021 and then you’ll likely attend year after year! This festival is typically in November, so keep an eye out next year.

While onsite we tried something new, Hawaiian Honey Cones! They’re setup on the beach today at Treasure Island – choose between pineapple Dole whip, chocolate, strawberry and other flavors. A meal in itself!

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
