OnLocationNI: Artfest Crowds Buzzed re: Sand Castle

Kerri Thoreson/OnLocation North Idaho

Sand castle engineer/artist Scott Dodson of Post Falls started with 16 tons of sand on Wednesday as he began to create a 14th century gothic castle. The sand is sprayed with an Elmer's glue and water mixture to help it retain moisture and last up to two months. At 12 feet high and 10 feet wide, the castle drew a continuous crowd of admirers during Art on the Green in Coeur d'Alene. Photos don't do justice to the intricate detail and sheer whimsy of the project. Go see it for yourself at the west side entrance to Ft. Sherman Park, adjacent to North Idaho College -- Kerri Thoreson/OnLocation North Idaho.
