Watch the sand come alive, or participate with friends and family at the 22nd annual sand sculpture contest at Indiana Dunes State Park on Saturday, July 13th.
Registration begins at 9 a.m. CDT on the west end of the pavilion and continues through 11 a.m. or until the field of participants is full. Judging begins at noon, followed by awards at 1 p.m.
Teams wanting a jump start may begin as early as 7 a.m.
Thanks to the support of the Friends of Indiana Dunes, prizes will be awarded in 3 categories. Park volunteers will be judging sculptures for the funniest, most creative, and most thematic awards. These three awards will be given to each age category; 15 years old and younger, and teams 15 years and older that are numbering fewer than eight people.
The theme for this year’s contest is "holidays."
Between noon and 1 p.m., observers can vote for their favorite sculpture under the category of the Viewer's Choice Award.
Call the Nature Center for any questions regarding this special event. 219-926-1390.
