  1. I am amazed at the amount of work that goes into each of these, I can’t build anything bigger than a basic sand castle.

  2. How fun! We live in Texas but have never been down there. I was actually thinking about it for this summer.

  3. This sounds like a wonderful festival to visit. We have a snow festival here in Japan, up north, that is the same idea.

  4. Wow, what amazing sculptures from sand. That is so much talent. Will look forward to who the winner is in this upcoming challenge.
