20191218 img 5568 spi castleGravity Park, near Louie’s Backyard, on South Padre Island is playing host to Christmas themed sandcastles through January 13, 2020. The event is free.

The village will feature holiday sand sculptures built by incredibly talented sand artists. From a sand snowman to Sand-ta, and much more, this exhibit will include a lighted musical performance.

Some of the artists that build these sandcastles are the same ones that participate in the Sandcastle Days competitions held in October. The artists travel the world learning new techniques and competing with other sandcastle artists.

You can also take a try building your own sandcastle on SandCamp Saturdays. SandCamp Saturdays are held every Saturday, from 5 to 6 p.m. at City Beach Access #16 on South Padre Island, weather permitting.

SandCamp is an educational project of Sand Castle Island Inc. Participants learn the fundamentals of sand castle construction using kid’s toys and ordinary objects that anyone might have on a trip to the beach, as well as the concept of Unlittering, awareness of sea life, and the life of the coast and shoreline.

SandCamp is free for everyone.
