Students from Creative Arts Charter School pose near their winning sculpture on Saturday
On Saturday, LEAP hosted their 28th Annual Sandcastle Contest where elementary school students team up with professional architects and contractors to create sandy masterpieces. Hundreds turned out to see the finished sculptures at the north end of Ocean Beach.
The theme this year was “Sandblast”, which was interpreted in many creative ways. Some teams had space craft blasting off, some sand structures were blasting their cannons at imaginary enemies, while others just portrayed creatures “having a blast”. One team built sandy replicas of the characters from the Angry Birds video game, known for blasting their way through pigs and blocks.
Congratulations to Creative Arts Charter School and to all the schools that participated!
