Weekend Recs : 22nd Annual Sand Sculpting Contest
The Coney Island Boardwalk will serve as the arena for the 22nd annual Sand Sculpting Contest and Unity Day on July 21. Experienced sculptors and hopeful amateurs alike will battle it out seaside for a $400 prize. Performances by Coney Island Drum Corps, the Brooklyn Dance Center, strongman Chris “Wonder” Schoeck and more add to the festivities. The event is free and open to the public. Round up the family and bring your shovel and pail to the boardwalk between West 10th and West 12th Streets from noon to 5pm. You may be inspired to build something of your own.
