This year’s Sandcastle Building Contest brought to a close the Celebrate Shoreline week-long series of events commemorating the City's 17th birthday. Attendance was fantastic! There were 22 contestants and approximately 300+ people on the beach.  

Comments often heard included "healthy fun" and "family friendly" where anyone could participate and have a very real chance at winning a prize!
