Ready. Set. Sculpt!
Tomorrow marks the 20th annual Sand Sculpting Competition at Coney Island. This is a great opportunity for all ages to enjoy a fun day in the sand & sun. Astella Development Group sponsors the event every year, which takes place between West 10th & 12th streets on the boardwalk at Coney Island. Admission is free to everyone!
If you are interested in joining in on the contest and have not yet registered, you can register online or the morning of the event. Contest day registration and sculpting begins at 11AM and the judging starts at 3PM. Participants can register as “child” or “adult” and can compete as either an “individual” or a “group” (groups can be “mixed” with children and adults but you must register as a “mixed” group if you wish to do so). Winners will receive cash prizes!
Not interested in building a sand castle but still want to join in on the fun? All day long there will be live music, dancing, information & craft tables, face painting, international entertainment and even clowns. The festivities don’t end until 5PM that evening, so sand sculptors will also have an opportunity to enjoy the other events.
Directions to the event available here.
