Sandcastle Days

Master sand sculptors Walter McDonald (aka Amazin' Walter) and Lucinda Wierenga (aka Sandy Feet) started Sandcastle Days 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 free family-fun event has grown from a local celebration to a qualifying event for the World Championships of Sand Sculpting, where 30,000-plus fans come to watch the sand come alive. This event has live music and vendors, as well as food and drinks.

Sept. 27-Oct. 3

Where:

Clayton's Beach Bar and Grill SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Texas
