The 53rd annual Sand Castle and Sand Sculpture Contest held June 8 on Crown Memorial Beach featured a vast array of original works in both the architectural and creative divisions. The Alameda Recreation and Parks Department, which hosts the event, reported 475 people participated with 50 sand castle entries and 64 sand sculpture entries. 

Winners were divided into age categories with the judges’ favorites being named “Best in Show” for each division. The top three entries from each category — which include the best in show entries — received ribbons for their efforts.
