Virtual Sandcastle Competition

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) our Annual Sandcastle Competition has gone virtual!

Build a sandcastle or sand sculpture at home or on the beach sometime this Summer between 20th July and 28th August and submit a photo of your build to enter to win in our very first ever Virtual Sandcastle Competition. We will award prizes to the winner and two runners up courtesy of Harbour Park. If you are making a sandcastle at home making fake sand really couldn’t be easier! All you have to do is mix 8 cups of flour with 1 cup baby oil. And if you keep it in a container with a tight lid, you can enjoy it for years to come! 

The winner will receive 2 wristband vouchers to Harbour Park and the runner up's will receive ride vouchers. The prizes are courtesy of Harbour Park.
