PORT ARANSAS, Texas — Sandfest is almost approaching, and Port Aransas is preparing to receive guests from all over the Coastal Bend. 

A combination of sand, water, and glue were brought to Port Aransas on Thursday to get the surface ready for artists to start building their sculptures.

Sandfest brings more than ten different master sculptors from around the world to create their gravity defined works of art. 

Organizers of Sandfest donate every year to help the Port Aransas community and other non-profit organizations in town.

Sandfest will be held April 26-28 and wristbands will be available at the gates during the event.
