Christmas comes early with beach sand sculpture


WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- You may have seen a jolly figure being sculpted out of the sand on Wrightsville Beach a couple months early today.

Sandi Adams of Sandi Castles was in front of the Holiday Inn sculpting Santa Claus for guests and the public. The holiday sculpture is made completely out of sand, and it should last a couple days so families can use it for Christmas card photos.

"People from the community can come, stand with the sculpture, take their family photo, have fun with it," Adams said. "They can even tell people they did it if they want. Shhh, we won't tell."

The sand sculpture includes St. Nick accompanied by a set of sandy Christmas trees.
