2007 26th Annual Sand Sculpture Contest
The 26th Annual Sand Sculpture Contest at Drakes Beach was once again well attended with 65 sculptures entered. Thousands of participants and observers showed up to enjoy a warm, sunny day. Unfortunately, a very high tide occurred at 3 p.m., quickly washing away many of the sculptures.
