Point Reyes National Seashore invites you to join the 24th annual Sand Sculpture Contest. We welcome all ages at this free community event located at Drakes Beach. Categories include: Children (14 and under), Families, Adult Individuals, and Adult Groups. Three prizes will be awarded in each of those categories. This event is family based, but please remember no dogs are allowed on this designated swimming beach (no lifeguard on duty). Local celebrity judges will be on hand to make the call on creativity and originality. A special prize this year will go to the sculpture incorporating the most recyclable plastic removed from the beach. Bring a picnic and spend the day!
