Point Reyes Station, Calif. - Point Reyes National Seashore invites you to join the 36th Annual Sand Sculpture Contest. We welcome all ages at this free community event located at Drakes Beach. Create your own sand sculpture or marvel at the works made by participants.
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. Only materials found on Drakes Beach may be incorporated into the structure. Do not pick plants or pull rocks or gravel from the cliffs. Build above the high tide line and away from the cliffs for your safety.
Please be aware that parking will be extremely limited during the contest and Drakes Beach will be heavily impacted with contest participants.
The Point Reyes National Seashore Association will have the Drakes Beach Café and Bookstore open on that day and will have food and drink for sale. This event is family based, but please remember that no dogs are allowed on this designated swimming beach (no lifeguard on duty). Judges will make the call on creativity and originality. Bring a picnic and spend the day!
