sand castle

For nearly 40 years, Delaware Seashore State Park has hosted an annual Sandcastle Contest, and it has become one of the park’s major events. At 9:30 a.m. Saturday, July 14, some 30 teams – totaling around 100 visitors from in and out of state – are expected to participate.

The event is family-friendly. In addition to the sandcastle building action, hands-on, beach-themed activities will be offered for kids.

The Sandcastle Contest will take place at the South Inlet Day Area beach, near the bathhouse. Judging begins at 1 p.m. and prizes will be awarded shortly thereafter. The contest is free to enter, with park entry fees in effect. Pre-registration is not required.

For more information, visit, or call the Indian River Life-Saving Station at 302-227-6991.
