Point Reyes National Seashore invites you to join the 28th 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 along with prizes for the sculpture with the most recycled plastic included. This event is family-based, but please remember no dogs are allowed on this designated swimming beach (no lifeguard on duty). Local celebrity judges include Wendy Friefeld and naval architect Gary Thompson who will 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!
For more information, please contact the Bear Valley Visitor Center (415) 464-5100 x2 x5. This event is sponsored in partnership with the Point Reyes National Seashore Association.
