Sandcastle Days, South Padre Island

Art, sand and sun mix to produce beautiful, large sand sculptures on South Padre Island this weekend. This is the 24th year for the event and the first at its new location on the beach behind Clayton's Bar & Grill, La Quinta and the Hilton Inn.

Although some sculptures are still a work in progress, I took pictures. People celebrate the event by viewing and/or voting on the sand sculptures, watching the sculptors at work, taking sandcastle building lessons, entering the amateur competition, flying kites or simply enjoying a beautiful day at the beach.

This is an opportunity to see Masters of Sand artists at work. This year's competition includes Masters of the Sand, Peoples' Choice and more. Saturday night beginning at 6:30, Castles by Candlelight begins. Enjoy and shrimp dinner for only $5.00 and enjoy the activities. A full schedule is available at
