Get psyched for the 23rd annual Coney Island Sand Sculpting Contest! Sand sculptors will transform 50 mounds of sand into artistic creations. Last year's contest attracted the largest group of participants in the event's history, as well as media coverage that spanned the globe!

The sand sculpting contest will take place on the beach and boardwalk from West 10th to West 12th Streets. Registration is free!
