Castle Grande offers an opportunity for the community to enjoy sand and sun while learning the basics of sand-sculpting. With tips and tricks from area professionals, community members of all ages can prepare for Sand Sculpture Contest or just enjoy an afternoon at the beach.
The Chamber of Commerce Grand Haven, Spring Lake, Ferrysburg, has partnered with the Sand Fanatics, a sand-sculpting troop that shares a passion for Michigan beaches and sandcastles, to present the 2017 event. The professional sand-sculpting group will have periodic demonstrations and training sessions to assist community members to create beautiful sand art.
The fun begins at Grand Haven City Beach. The Sand Fanatics will pound up a main central castle to a height of 7 or 8 feet then invite other teams, groups, families and individuals to connect their castles side-by-side along the water front to form one continuous sand castle.
This event is free and open to everyone! No matter what your age or experience level, bring your own bucket and enjoy a great summer day full of sun, surf, and sand art!
