Parksville Sandcastle Competition

August 31, 2007 – 12:36 pm | by Bill

On Sunday we drove out to Parksville, which is about a 2 hour drive from Colwood, each way. We went to the Parksville Beach Festival (or Sandcastle Competition) which featured sand castles designed and created by professionals. I’m not sure what it takes to become a professional, but the sandcastles looked great! Some of the pictures that I took are below, and you can see more (and better) pictures on Dave’s post.

I honestly don’t know how the judges make their decisions on which entries win the competition, because most of them were really impressive. There were three team entries, and a bunch of single entries. Each team had a total of 23 hours over 3 days. Parksville’s Sandcastle Competition has been a tradition since 1982, and seems to be a popular event.

Some of the pictures are a bit blurry because I had my camera in manual focus mode, and I thought it was in automatic so I didn’t bother focusing. Sigh. Oh well, some of them still turned out, and the other ones I can live without.
