|Sandcastle Day in Cannon Beach|
The Cannon Beach 49th Annual Sancastle Day is coming and Saturday June 15th, 2013 is the day. This is a fun Oregon Coast event for spectators and participants. It all begins just after the early morning high tide and ends as the next high tide reclaims the beach. In the short span between tides some amazing sandcastles are built! You can come and be a apart of the fun whether you participate or just come to watch the fun.
Since 1964, Cannon Beach Sandcastle Day has grown to be one of the largest sand building contests on the West Coast. Sand sculptures, castles, and drawings are hand constructed and then awards are presented. There are several age divisions, from children through Masters.
The emphasis is on fun. Contestants pre-register online as individuals or as teams by age group and are judged not only on the finished product, but also on enthusiasm and teamwork.
