Stellar turn out for Sandcastle Contest

Sunday, August 24, 2014

This is really what it's all about

Sunday, August 17, 2014 marked another finale to the week-long summer events that make Celebrate Shoreline! The weather was made to order and there was a stellar turn out at the Richmond Beach Saltwater Park for the Sandcastle Contest.

These people are dedicated to their art

There were 20 contestants and well over a hundred on-lookers. Organizer Jack Malek said,
"There were some of the best sculptures we've seen with a sand-made row boat (Ken, Meg, and Ruby Beck), a shark week display with a hammer head (Mary, Sean and Wade) and a mermaid (Lilly Steinmetz and Mary Reidy)!"
The mermaid  took third place

Lilly's sculpture was the first ever performing art piece as she included herself into the sculpture, part sand/ part maid. The first place kids' award was taken by a group Fus Rotar (Cameron, Caillou, and Brenden).

1st place in the making - a row boat

Honorable mentions went to: Mateo's Team, Rana, McMorris Family, Mario Team, and the Friends Team.
