Delaware Seashore State Park to Host 38th Annual Sandcastle Contest
DEWEY BEACH, Del.– 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.
