Have you heard? The U.S. Open Sand Castle Competition is this weekend in Imperial Beach, CA.
The Sand Castle dance on Friday, July 22nd kicks everything off in style and benefits the Imperial Beach Boys and Girls Club.
On Saturday, the Kids-N-Kastles competition is held along with a huge street festival filled with music, food and arts n’ crafts.
Sunday, July 24th is the main event. Professionals and amateurs come from all over to carve these magnificent ‘castles’ out of sand. Vying for the title of Master’s Champion, the sand castle building gets going at 9:00 am and goes until 2:00 pm. The castles are judged and the winner announced. These beauties are a sight to behold, but get there early because the tide will wash them away just a few hours later.
