Sand Castle Contest Set For July 29
West End Realty and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation have announced their joint sponsorship of the 17th Annual Sand Castle Contest, one of the most successful and widely-anticipated events of the summer season.
The contest will be held on the beach at Beach 118 Street in Rockaway Park on Sunday, July 29, from 12 noon - 2 p.m.
As in past years, trophies and other prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
CHILDREN 1–8 Years Old With Adult(s)
CHILDREN 9–13 Years Old Without Adult(s) ADULTS (14 Years and Up)
Prospective contestants are invited to pre-register now at the office of West End Realty at 209 Beach 116 Street in Rockaway Park, or submit their name and desired entry category via fax to West End Realty at 718-634-0075. Final registration for anyone not pre-registering will take place at the contest site from 10 a.m. - 12 noon, just prior to the start of competition.
Contestants are invited to bring their pails, shovels, putty knives, melon ballers, plastic kitchen utensils, paint scrapers … and – most importantly – their imagination and creativity! Other “props,” trimmings, decorative touches and sculpture add-ons must be items found on the beach (for example: seashells, seaweed, twigs and rocks).
