You may think sand is boring, but wait until you see what sculptors can do with it at Clam Harbour Beach on Sunday.

David Jones, project manager for the 32nd annual Clam Harbour Beach Sandcastle and Sculpture Contest said there’s something about the sand on this beach that makes it perfect for sculpting.

“You end up with some pretty fantastic, Walt Disney-like sandcastles that stand four or five feet high,” Jones said.

“You also get lots of sea creatures, dragons and boat sculptures with ocean-related themes and they can be quite stunning as well.”

There will be at least 70 teams competing this year and over 15,000 spectators are expected to attend.

Abram Waterman, a sand artist and sculptor, will be helping out the competitors and creating his sculpture described as “one of a kind.”
