This Sand Castle Building Contest In Connecticut Will Bring Out The Kid In Everyone

Days at the beach in the summer can be long and lazy but they don’t have to be. Grab a bucket and a shovel and enter this sand castle building contest to test your seaside talents. Rather just watch? That’s fine too. Pack a picnic and enjoy a day at one of Connecticut’s great beaches and spectate the sand as it turns into art before your eyes.

Are you ready to enter this sand castle building contest? Or are you just going to bring a cooler and some chairs and watch?

If you can’t make the festival, then spend your time this summer on some of Connecticut’s beaches collecting sea glass. If you love our beaches and state parks, join the Connecticut Nature Lovers group on Facebook to see more incredible places to visit.
