Wordless Wednesday: Sandcastle Days, South Padre Island, Texas

November 16, 2016

Sandcastle Days 2016 was held at Clayton’s, the biggest beach bar in South Padre Island, Texas on October 6th-9th. Master Sand sculptors Walter McDonald (aka Amazin Walter) and Lucinda Wierenga (aka Sandy Feet), both South Padre Island residents, started Sandcastle Days 29 years ago as a way to demonstrate the magical sculpting qualities of South Padre Island sand AND the critical importance of protecting our beautiful coastal shores. Over the years this family-fun event has grown from a local celebration to qualifying event for the World Championships of Sand Sculpting where 30,000+ fans come to watch the sand come alive.
