Festivities On The Sand

The Blue Water Area has two big beach parties happening this week. Both of them serve up a unique kind of fun that only the eastern shores of Michigan can offer.

Now in it's 4th year The Blue Water SandFest is Michigan's first and only Master sand sculpting and Advanced Amateur competition/festival. For 3 days the grounds of the Fort Gratiot Light Station will see extraordinary sculptures crafted from sand and water that will dazzle and impress visitors to the site. 

Voted on of the 10 Best festivals of its sort by USA Today, the Blue Water Sand Fest is much more than just checking out the impressive works of art.

There will be an eclectric array of live music through out the weekend, a Quick Sand Speed Sculpting Show, hands on sculpting lessons, tours of the Fort Gratiot Lighthouse and much more.

The Blue Water Sandfest runs July 8th-10th in Port Huron. Download the full schedule here.

Ask anyone who has been to Harbor Beach's Maritime Festival and one of the first things they'll mention is the Jet-Ski races.  For good reason too as the festival is home to one of the world’s largest personal watercraft races in the largest man-made harbor in the world. The races though are just one part of the many things this summer party has happening.

Starting on July 7th and running through the 10th, the Maritime Festival is four days of fun in a great Michigan beach town. 

There will be a whole lot of music on Friday and Saturday for starters! The weekend also brings hometown fun like a Frog Jumping contest, a craft show, a volleyball tournament, lighthouse tours and a car show. Fireworks light up the harbor on Saturday night.  And let's not forget the roar just off starts at 10AM on Saturday with the H&R Block Invitational Jet Ski Races.
