|We had a good overview from the pier|
This is an annual event in Imperial Beach that includes a swim & paddle at the pier, a 3 K run, a Zumba demonstration, a parade and a fun zone for the kids in addition to the main event which is the sand sculpture competition. Just sand, water and tools are used to pack sand into castles, whimsical creatures and buildings. Some themes included peace, Alice in Wonderland characters, castles, astronauts and whimsical fish. The Spirit of Imperial Beach bronze sculpture depicts the dual theme of surfing and sand castles.
A band playing nearby for music entertainment. It was a fun way to spend a summer day.
