Drakes Beach Sand Sculpture Contest



Everyone has their own beach style. No, I don’t mean bedazzled bikini versus sporty one-piece, it’s more about a mode. Many are content sun worshippers, diligently turning periodically to ensure an even tan, wearing clothing to avoid awkward lines, nary dipping as much as a toe in the surf. Others, myself included, view a trip to the beach without a dip in the ocean as blasphemous — I blame my Southern California upbringing. And yet another group has a totally different orientation that’s decidedly activity-minded. For this group, Sunday poses an exciting opportunity.

The Annual Sand Sculpture Contest will be held at Drakes Beach and all ages are welcome. Categories include: Children (14 and under), Families, Adult Individuals, and Adult Groups. Three prizes will be awarded in each of those categories, along with prizes for the sculpture with the most recycled plastic included. Please be aware that parking will be extremely limited during the contest and Drakes Beach will be heavily impacted with contest participants. To avoid crowds here, please consider visiting another beach in the park. This event is family based, but please remember no dogs are allowed on this designated swimming beach (no lifeguard on duty).
Bring a picnic and spend the day!
