Sand Sculpture Contest at Indiana Dunes State Park July 13
Indiana Ag Connection - 07/10/2019
Sand becomes art during the 22nd annual Indiana Dunes State Park sand sculpture contest on July 13.
Registration begins at 9 a.m. CT on the west end of the pavilion and continues through 11 a.m. or until the field of participants is full. Teams can begin crafting their structures as early as 7 a.m. Judging begins at noon, followed by awards at 1 p.m.
Thanks to the support of the Friends of Indiana Dunes, prizes will be awarded in three categories: funniest, most creative, and most thematic, as judged by park volunteers. The theme for this year's contest is holidays.
There will be two divisions, teams with members 15 years old and younger, and teams with members 15 and older. The limit is eight people per team.
Between noon and 1 p.m., observers can vote for their favorite sculpture for the Viewer's Choice Award.
Participation in the contest is free after paying the standard gate fee of $7 per in-state vehicle and $12 per out-of-state vehicle.
