Serious sand lovers can grab a pail, shovel and other tools and head to the beach at Wildwood Crest for the town's annual sand sculpture festival. This ultimate summer event is worth checking out even if you don't want to compete.
The contest is being organized in conjunction with “Can You Dig It!” sand tools and directed by internationally-known sand sculptor Matt Long. Long is a regular competitor at master competitions, including the World Championships of Sand Sculpting, and is an original cast member of the former Travel Channel Show Sand Masters.
The contest will take place on the beach next to the Wildwood Crest Beach Pier at Heather Road.
Other kid-friendly activities today include a corn hole bean bag toss and other games, a children’s magic show and live music.
