Check Out This Christmas Sandcastle Event at Laurita
It's another amazing holiday attraction, this time at Laurita Winery, for you and your kids from sand sculpting artists Bette and Eddie!
Here's what you will see:
-- 12 Knights of Christmas: Larger-than-life hand-carved sculptures of 12 noble knights protecting the Christmas tree-shaped castle that harnesses energy created by the true Christmas Spirit. Each visitor will be given tokens that they can dispense in the "Giving Wells" at the feet of the Knights. The Knights represent various charities, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated based on the ratio of tokens collected by the Knights. The more energy created from the giving, the brighter the star at the top of the Christmas Castle becomes!
Some of the charities you can help will provide funds for family crisis, first responders, medical research, veterans, and animal rescue.
-- North Pole Express (GPS for Rudolph): A special tractor trailer containing a load of special ice blocks directly from Santa in the North Pole are set up. small pieces of the ice are being carved, packaged and distributed to all of the believers. When Rudolph flies over your town, his nose will tingle and he will head to your house first since it contains a genuine piece of the North Pole. There will also be some great holiday-themed ice carving photo ops.
-- Candy Cane slide: A huge candy cane-shaped and decorated tube slide will be available for lots of fun to be had by all.
-- Ornament Work Shop (addition cost): Mark your visit to the Christmas Castle with a 2019 special edition ornament. Available as-is, or you can sit at the workshop table and creeate a masterpiece to your liking.
-- Christmas Carol-Oke: Sing along to the large screen outdoor display featuring all of the holiday favorites. Weather-permitting campfires will be lit to keep warm while you sing.
Snacks and hot beverages will be available for purchase.

This time Eddie and Bette, have outdone themselves!
