The annual Davis Bay Sand Castle Contest is going ahead on Saturday, July 12 in Mission Point park.
“This is a great community event,” said one of the organizers, “everyone always asks me when it’s going to be.”
Registration is at 10 am, and the judging starts at 1 pm with winners announced at 2:30. Partnered with the District of Sechelt, Johanna Tacchi and her husband Aldo are looking forward to this year’s competition with eagerness.
“I’m really impressed with some of the sculptures,” Aldo Tacchi said, “and they’ve got only three hours to build it because of the tide.”
The sculptures are diverse and very imaginative, and that is inspiring many community members to volunteer, including students from Chatelech high school in Sechelt.
The event’s key business sponsors are Sechelt Plumbing, IGA Marketplace and Canadian Tire.
“We love Davis Bay, and we’d like to see this great event continue on,” Aldo Tacchi added.
Refreshments on site but entrees and visitors may want to bring water, snacks, and good sun protection like hats, t-shirts and sunblock. Extra parking is available east of Mission Point Park.
