Let's meetup at Lincoln and Great highway on the seawall and walk over to the food trucks and get a bite to eat and then stroll along the beach to admire the sand art. The judging begins at 2:30pm so we should be able to see the finished work.
Leap hosts this spirited competition between teams of architects, designers, contractors, corporations, engineers and local elementary school students each Autumn on San Francisco's magnificent Ocean Beach. The Sandcastle Contest is a fundraiser to support Leap's arts education programs (http://www.leaparts.org), but admission is free to the community.
By the end of the day, the beach is transformed into a land of magical creatures and fantastical structures.
From their website:
Approximately 3,000 people attend Leap's Sandcastle Contest each year, including: families, kids of all ages, cyclists, fans of the Ocean Beach, and supporters of the arts and education. All are welcome! The event is free to the public. Bring the family and enjoy the sand & surf, sip on a chai, have lunch from one of our gourmet food trucks, buy a t-shirt to commemorate the event, listen to music, participate in incredible raffles and just enjoy a day at the beach! Leap Sandcastle is more than a competition it truly puts into play the work of the organization in a way everyone can enjoy!
I will be bringing Shadow-doggie but will be making sure he doesn't interfere with the sand art. Hope you can join us!
