Get your creative juices flowing at the annual PeachFest sandcastle competition

Not your average sandcastle

Registration is now open for one of Peach Fest's most fun and creative activities — the sandcastle competition.

Held at Skaha Lake, teams compete over several hours to create intricate giant sculptures on the beach to be judged by a panel at the end of the evening.

There are options for a corporate/business team, family and friends team, youth team aged 13-16 and a separate competition for kids teams age 12 and under.

The creations are judged on bet use of plot, artistic content, intricacy and some points for judge's discretion.

All materials included in the final sculpture must be environmentally friendly materials like pebbles and pinecones.

The event is sponsored by Greyback Construction and is a joint event organized by Peach Fest and the Local Projects Society. All money raised from the tickets will go to the Society to support local projects.

Tickets range from $10-$50 depending on the type of team.

It all gets started on the beach near the Skaha sundial on Thursday, Aug. 4 at 5:30 p.m. and spectators are welcome! For more information and to register, click here.
