sand-castle-contestUpcoming Event – 2017 Sand Castle Contest


On Saturday, August 12, 2017. Registration beginning at 9 am, on Siletz Bay, Historic Taft District in Lincoln City, off of SW 51st Street. Only sand, water, shells and other natural beach materials found on the beach that day, can be used for construction. Forms can be used in the construction process, but in no way support the final structure. Hand tools may be used, but no power tools. This is an amateur competition, professional “sand artists” are disqualified from winning prizes. This is a fun, family oriented event, and we ask that your creations be done with respect to this tradition. There will be a variety of age groups, and a variety of categories for judging. Entrants must register the day of the event, before building begins. No registration fee, but we request a donation of non-perishable food for the Lincoln City Food Pantry.
