There may not be much surf (yes, Colorado is a landlocked state), but you’ll find tons and tons of sand at Arvada’s Sand in the City on Saturday & Sunday, June 24 & 25. From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, explore giant sand sculptures built by locals in Ralston Park. Enjoy live music, cool drinks from craft breweries, food and a Kids Zone (with – what else? – a sandbox, bounce castle and games). A Beach Luau with full show is scheduled both days. The event is $5 for adults, kids 12 and under are FREE. Located at 64th & Simms, in Arvada, Colorado at east end of the park. Park in Arvada West High School lots.
