31st Annual AIA Sandcastle Competition — June 3, Galveston

Pack up your towels, flip-flops, sunscreen, and beach chairs and head to the beach to see a challenge of a lifetime — building the ultimate sand castle. For over two decades, teams of architects, designers, and engineers have taken their tools to East Beach in Galveston for one of the world’s largest sand castle competitions. Teams are judged on originality of concept, artistic execution, technical difficulty, carving technique, and utilization of the site in a quest for the highly sought-after Golden Bucket prize at this free event.
