The forecast for Ocean Shores looks ideal
In the days ahead, you’ll find relief from the forecast heat inland at The Polynesian Resort in Ocean Shores. While temperatures in urban areas will creep up in the 80’s and 90’s—too hot for most folks–you can stay cool on the Central Washington coast.
At The Polynesian Resort, the forecast calls for sunny, bright days, in the comfortable mid- 60’s. The weather looks perfectly inviting all the way through for the weekend of the annual Sand and Sawdust Festival presented by Five Start Dealerships.
These are perfect days for beachcombing, riding bikes, hiking nearby trails or fishing from many lakes and streams. Or, you can check out special events all summer long in town and at the Ocean Shores Convention Center.
Sand and Sawdust Festival, June 22-24
The annual Sand & Sawdust Festival combines three days of events around the unique art forms of chainsaw carvings and sand castle building.
Twenty-eight amazing carvers will create nearly 100 unique chainsaw sculptures to be auctioned each day. You can watch the artists at work, then purchase your favorite creations. Professional and semi-pro chainsaw carvers from Argentina to Texas, Minnesota and the Northwest will demonstrate their skills. The Friday and Saturday the program includes the audience favorite “quick carve” event.
Sandcastle building workshops will be held at the convention center. Resident sand artist, Doug Orr, will build a sandcastle and provide free daily sand building workshops for the entire family. With your new skills, you can head to the beach and build your own magical creations.
Then, on the beach, Justin The Circler will give guided instruction, teaching the ancient of sacred geometry through sand mandalas. Justin is a naturalist, philosopher, mathematician, inventor, carpenter, and artist. He will guide you as you create your own symmetric designs or just freestyle creations in the Ocean Shore sand.
Lessons, tools, and plenty of sand await you for an experience you will not soon forget. Free lessons will begin at 1pm, Friday-Sunday. Your creations will last until the tide comes in.
Make memories every time you visit Ocean Shores.
