Is there a hidden sculptor inside you just waiting to break free? Do you need an official excuse to spend the day at the beach digging in the sand? Bring your pail and shovel to the 28th annual New Jersey Sandcastle Contest at the 18th Avenue Beach in Belmar on Wednesday, July 30th.
Presented annually by the Belmar Tourism Commission and D’Jais, the competition is free and open to competitors of all ages and abilities. Prizes will be awarded in six different categories: ages 7 & under, ages 8-11, ages 12-15, and 16 and over, along with Best Group and Best Family.

Bring the family for tons of fun along with free giveaways, drinks, games and music. Visitors will have a chance to win great prizes, including tickets to a 2014/15 New Jersey Devils game.
