Point Reyes National Seashore invites you to join the 26th 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, Gregory DeMascio and Lyons Filmer from community radio station KWMR will be on hand to make the call on creativity and originality. This year, students from the Latino Photography Project of Gallery Route One in Point Reyes Station, will be capturing the sculptures on film for the park website. Bring a picnic and spend the day!
