Local News

You may notice something different at Haynie’s Corner this weekend during first Friday.

Sauced owner and president of Haynie’s Corner Art District Association Scott Schymik says there are crazy things that happen almost every First Friday.

You won’t have to go far to dig your feet in the sand and catch some shade under palm trees.

We’re expecting about 60 tons of sand to be brought in were going to create a nice island out here in the middle of the street right between sauced and Moe’s house.”

All for tiki week.

“A little form of escapism everyone can just get out and kind of party how they want to,” says Scott Schymik, sauced owner and president of Haynie’s Corner Art District Association.

Brian Wildeman, owner of Wilde Horticulture, says the idea to bring the beach to Haynie’s corner started out as just a joke.

“A couple years ago we jokingly said we were going to bring sand into the bar and then now we’re building a 60-ton sandpit in the middle of the street. I think this is probably one of the first big installations of a beach in the city.”

The event will feature a sandcastle competition, tug o war, survivor games and more.
