Clam Harbour Beach Sandcastle Competition

When: Sun., Aug. 11, 9 a.m. 2019

If this sounds like a lighthearted child's gathering, it's clear you've never swung by the competition—now entering its 41 year—when the sand artists are at work. Armed with petite, perfectionist tools like toothbrushes to get every grain of sand into submission, many of the fest's diehard fans create honest-to-god sculptures that'll surrender to the tide by day's end.Bear witness to the art while it lasts—or maybe pick up a pail and join the fun!
