VIDEO: Sand sculpture explodes on Siesta Key Beach

by: Loren Mayo, Nick Friedman

The Travel Channel filmed an episode of its show “Sand Wars” today on Siesta Key Beach. For the show, both professional and amateur sand-sculpting teams competed for the audience's favor.

After each elimination round, the sculpture with the fewest audience votes was annihilated with a bang.

The filming will continue through Tuesday, and eventually all the sculptures will be exploded. The show will be airing sometime before June 2012.
