Homer Events hosted its first “Bonfire On The Beach” last Sunday. As a first-year event it had some weaknesses, and there will be a lot of changes to next year’s party, but in the end — “Holy mackerel!”
Spread out all along the beach there were about 25 incredible, unbelievable, amazing sandcastles and sand sculptures, from simple sandcastles built by kids under 12, to clam-clad mermaids, several sand animals including octopuses and a stunning sand bear that could have awoken at any time, plus giant, intricate palaces with bridges, and artwork, and winding multi-level terraces, and moats, and imaginative features like fires burning in enclosed ovens, and — everything!
So next year we’ll move the whole event onto the beach, have better visibility, and rather than billing it as a bonfire, it’s going to be all about sand artwork. And we promise it’ll blow you away when you see 100 or more people working on creating their sand projects.
Homer Events sincerely thanks Michelle Melchert and Jennifer Cabana of Skiff Chicks, Gina Pelaia of Bay Realty, Rich Evanco of Reliable Comfort Insulation, and all the vendors and participants for helping make a fun community event happen.
Allz I can say is “Homer really does rock the sand art thing!”
We’ll see you next year at Mariner Park. Bring a plastic shovel.
