Spring has sprung! There are so many cool things to do in and around Siesta Key. Here are a few of our favorite things to do this month!

48th Annual Amateur Sand Sculpture Contest - May 1

This free, family-friendly event is cosponsored by Friends of Sarasota County Parks and Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce.

Help us celebrate Sarasota County in its 100 years of service by looking for our centennial sand sculpture at the event. Or, if you're participating in the contest, consider dreaming up your own centennial inspired sculpture.
