and features a street fair with arts, crafts, food and
live music at the pier in Imperial Beach.

the spotlight on how much improvment has been done in recent

Parking Tips
If you get there late the best thing to do is pay $5.00 and park in
the high school parking lot. Traffic for this event backs up almost
a mile from the beach area

I always throw the bike in the back and then park 8-10 blocks away
and just ride in.

This Sandcastle contest in Imperial Beach
is the largest in the USA.
This event attracts over 300,000 people to
the beaches just south of Coronado and
downtown San Diego. Once known as a run down section
of town, this area has undergone extensive improvements
along the waterfront and beach areas to make it one of
the finest communities along the Southern California coastline.

Make sure you bookmark this event and get there early Sunday
to watch the sandcastle teams build this years contest winners.

It is a great event which is perfect for kids, families and friends!

See you in Imperial Beach July 13th!
