Get ready to dig in. It’s amazing how with a little imagination the beach at Birch Bay transforms in to a series of sand castles and sand sculptures. Be creative and build sand sculptures from geometric freeform’s, sea turtles to alligators, mermaids to mythical castles, or your favorite pet.

This two-day event features music, vendors, and of course, sandcastles! Registration is free and it’s open to families or more competitive teams. Awards are handed out each day at 4:30pm.
