Hurry to Florence for the 2019 Circles in Sand Florence Beach Draw

Published: October 08, 2019

Florence, OR - It's the 2nd Circles in the Sand Florence Beach Draw on Saturday, October 12.

Labyrinth artist Denny Dyke is bringing his popular natural and meditative art installation to Heceta Beach! Circles in the Sand was first created by Denny as a walking meditation and way to connect with the ocean and ever-changing sand. The first "Dreamfield" was created in 2014 and has been a favored attraction among coastal visitors whenever one is made. Dreamfields have grown to be giant patterns, a garden of sand with several spirals and meandering paths that always return home. 

The "draw-out" starts at 3 p.m. with Denny teaching everyone how to create this amazing art form on the "canvas" of Heceta Beach. At 4:30 p.m., volunteers are welcome to help groom the labyrinth before the path walk begins at 5 p.m. Watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean while contemplating the wonder of the sea!

This year's event welcomes David McMurray of Sifting Sands. Be sure to check out @Sifting Sands on Facebook to see photos of the amazing sand art David creates. 

Brought to Florence by Driftwood Shores Resort and Conference Center and Sand Master Park Sandborading. Circles in the Sand Florence Beach Draw is a family event and free to attend.
