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.

There were food trucks and booths in the area so Paul and I bought  hot dogs from a Boy Scout troop and enjoyed lunch at one of the tables under some palm trees near the beach.  
 A band playing nearby for music entertainment. It was a fun way to spend a summer day.
