Buckets of Fun at the AIA Galveston Sand Castle Contest June 2nd 2012

Galveston AIA Sand Castle Contest -- June 2nd, 2012.  For a fun outing, make sure and go to the Sand Castle Contest on East Beach in Galveston the first Saturday of June each year.  There are some wonderful sand castles, as well as some funny and innovative ones as well.

There were also prizes for the Best Team Costume. These were very creative.  I love the red sign and dragon on the wood planks.  Each team had a rectangle to construct their sand castle in, for this one they had a dragon around three sides of the rectangle.  It was impressive.  Part of the dragon is behind the little blue sign to the left.
