About Boardwalk Sand on Whyte
The very first Sand on Whyte sand carving exhibit was held in Old Strathcona in 2013. Many of the ice carving artists who come to the Ice on Whyte Festival also travel the world and carve sand in the summer.
The Boardwalk Sand on Whyte is very pleased to welcome this year’s sand carving artists.
Boardwalk Sand on Whyte is produced by the Ice on Whyte Festival Society in partnership with Boardwalk, local businesses and granting agencies.
