Family Sand Sculpting Competition

The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples (C’mon) will be hosting its 6th annual Castles for Kids Sand Sculpting Competition at LaPlaya Beach and Golf Resort on Wednesday, August 1st.  While building sand sculptures of various sizes and shapes, this event aims to raise funds to support STEAM educational programming at C’mon.


Designed to provide children and families with a morning of fun under the sun, 20 teams, consisting of children and adults will hit the beach to compete for awards for the best sand sculpture creations. In addition to entertainment like pirates and an appearance from Moana, there will be a raffle featuring an assortment of items donated by local businesses and attractions to help raise additional fundraising. Prizes and awards will be distributed during a lunch provided by LaPlaya.
