Kicking off the summer season, Monday, July 16th, Yoshida’s Sand and the City and Portland Mall Management Inc. will come together to create sand sculptures to bring Sand on the Mall! Multiple sand artists will be on hand carving and sculpting away at Unico Plaza, on SW 6th and Oak, from 11:30am-1:30pm. 6’ tall sand sculptures will be built in summer themes by Portland’s sand professionals. Spectators can cast their votes throughout the day to help determine the winning sculpture.
Viewers can cool down with free summer treats while also enjoying great oldies and summer favorites from Get A Life Marching Band as they perform at 12pm. KUPL 98.7 and Live 95.5 will also be at the event with great prizes and FREE giveaways! Sand in the City’s annual signature event, Yoshida’s Sand in the City, will return to Pioneer Courthouse Square later this July on Friday, July 20th.
Portland Mall Management, Inc. will continue to bring programming to Downtown’s Revitalized Transit Mall, along SW Fifth and SW Sixth Avenues, with FREE family-friendly events and activities on the third Monday of each month during the lunch hour.
