It is Thursday already, and that means there is only two more days until the Data-Link West Birch Bay Sand Sculpture Contest! This is Whatcom Counties only official Sand Sculpture contest and as always it will be held on the beach in Birch Bay, this Saturday, June 22. Registration starts at 9:00 (be first in line and grab your favorite spot on the beach). Judging is at High Noon, and winners announced at 2:00 PM.
Every year this event is held is just full of smiles on the kids, the families, in fact on everyone who comes out. In 2012 the weather was not perfect (ok, it rained at the end), but it was much better than Bellingham. And the sand sculptures that were built were fantastic! This year we know there are more people participating, we have great tides this year (-2.3) , and all in all it is going to be fun!
We have three categories again this year – Individual, Families and Groups, and Business. Each category will have a First, Second and Third Place Awards and one of them, possibly you or your team, will win Best of Show! Again we will have a jury of judges who will, as always, have a heck of a time scoring as every sand sculpture is amazing. No two have ever been alike and the ideas people have seem limitless.
The weather forecast for Saturday is typically June’ish. Overcast, highs in the upper 60’s/low 70’s but there is a small chance of rain. It does not matter as we will, regardless of weather, build those sculptures! I hope it is like last Sunday with the 70% chance of rain that turned into a day of sun! So get a hold of your friends, family and business associates and come on out.
Want more information? Give the Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce a call (360) 371-5004, or send us an Email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Better yet, come on out to this free family, friends and loved ones event here in Birch Bay!
