Held every August (for the past 36 years!) at Jetties Beach, this late summer ritual is a favorite among participants and sandcastle admirers. Each year, over 50 sculptures emerge from the sand from families and teams vying for the top honors. The rules are simple-be creative! Highlights have included everything from Nantucket Lightship Baskets to VW Bugs. A visit to Jetties Beach to watch the sculpting in action or to view the finished sculptures at sunset is well worth the trip!
