It is Saturday, August 17th from Noon – 5:00 p.m.
The sand sculpting contest will take place on the beach and boardwalk from West 10th to West 12th Streets. Professional Sand Sculptors will be on-site to create amazing sculptures representing Coney Island icons - including the New York Aquarium!
Watch amateur sculptors—both children and adults—from throughout NYC and beyond compete in five categories. Three winners in each category will receive cash prizes. Plus there will be entertainment like a Latin band, and several dance groups!
Of course there will be FREE stuff too: Along the boardwalk, local organizations will provide informational materials and giveaways.
