Enjoy the last of the summertime fun at this cool festival. The 84th Annual Long Beach Sand Sculpture Competition features an impressive centerpiece sculpture built from a dream team of professionals creating an impressive work of art from sand for your enjoyment. It’s only a short drive from Brighton. The sculpture will be dramatically lit for incredible nighttime viewing. Try your creative design skills and build your own sculpture. There will also be live music, vendor booths of arts & crafts and food tents. The event will include an impressive kid’s zone, where kids can build their own sandcastles (with parent supervision), giant slides, jumpers, climbing wall, parachute drop, hamster balls and more.
