The Sixth Annual Edgartown Board of Trade Sand Sculpture contest is Wednesday, August 1, at Right Fork, South Beach in Edgartown, to the left of the guard house.

Contestants may bring any building materials they wish, but none can be used for structural support in the final product. In other words, no sneaking in rebar foundations.

Decorations are fair game, though, but any non-biodegradable items must be cleaned up at the end of the contest.

Note, sandcastle fun is not just for the young. There are two categories, adult and junior.

Castle building runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with awards being announced at 3 p.m., the judges will announce the awards. Ribbons and cash prizes for top finishers.
