SANDCASTLE CONTEST
Get ready to dig in! Bring the entire family to the Sandcastle Contest at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park on Sunday, August 21. With a little imagination and a lot of sand, Richmond Beach transforms into a series of sandcastles and sculptures. Judges will vote for the top entries in the "Adult/Family" and "Kids 12 & Under" categories.
New this year, up to five businesses are invited to join in the sandcastle building. Get together with employees and build a "business sculpture." Have some fun and garner exposure for your business. Reserve space for your business by emailing sandcastle@richmondbeachwa.org. Act fast - spots filling up fast!
Spectators will find participants using sand, water and any other natural materials found at the beach to construct their castles and sculptures. Participants and spectators will also enjoy a beach BBQ and live steel drum music. Registration starts at 11:00 a.m.; contest begins at 11:30 a.m. and awards will be announced at 2:00 p.m.

BEACH TO BLUFF CHALLENGE
Prior to the Sandcastle Contest, bust your buns at the all new Beach to Bluff Run/Walk. Challenge yourself with beach, hill and trail walking/running combined with climbing stairs and other fun obstacles. Separate course for families and strollers. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. with a race start of 8:00 a.m.
