Sand Castle Days 2017


  • Clayton's Beach Bar 6900 Padre Boulevard South Padre Island, TX, 78597 United States (map)

Master Sand sculptors Walter McDonald (aka Amazin Walter) and Lucinda Wierenga (aka Sandy Feet) are South Padre Island residents and 30 years ago started Sandcastle Days as a way to demonstrate the magical sculpting qualities of South Padre Island sand AND the critical importance of protecting our beautiful coastal shores.

Over the years this FREE family-fun event has grown from a local celebration to qualifying event for the World Championships of Sand Sculpting where 30,000+ fans come to watch the sand come alive. Admission to this year’s event is FREE and boasts a new location, live music, art booths, great food, and an exciting new evening. Check back here and on the event schedule page for more details!
