Who says you have to live at the beach to have a great sand sculpture competition? Well, everybody knows that there’s sand around a lake and one of the greatest local lakes is Lake Gregory in Crestline, California.The community is located in the San Bernardino Mountains.
Come join the fun and use your imagination to take part in the 15th Annual Sand Sculpture Competition.on August 31. Come early so you can grab one of the 25 available sand piles. The exciting sand sculpture competition promises to be great fun as the “artists” create their entry and from what I understand they are quiet incredible. Plan to attend and perhaps you’ll get interested in participating next year. The fun will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. so there’s plenty of time to enjoy the lake and the community.
There will be several categories so everyone can participate. The categories include: children 12 years old and younger, youth 3 to 17-years-old, adults and families. There will be prizes for the first, second and third place winners in each category.
Doesn’t this sound like fun? What a great way to be creative and I imagine that because this will be the 15th year this fun event will be held it will be great fun so plan to spend the day. Be sure to bring along sunscreen!
To compete in the competition it’s free but you must pay to “get into” the swim/ lake area and the charge is $6 per person. Children under five-years-old are free. Twenty-five spaces are available on a first come, first serve basis so if you are a competitor you might want to show up early to grab a space and to make sure you can get a parking space close by. Speaking of parking, the charge to park is $6 per vehicle.
Lake Gregory is one of five San Bernardino County Regional Parks and the site is maintained by the county. Technically the lake is located at 24171 Lake Drive in Crestline but it would be hard to verify that address because it’s a lake and doesn’t speak English. For information call (909) 338-2233.
This fun event should be interesting and exciting (to say the least) whether you’re a participant or someone who just wants to watch all the fun goings’ on.
Come enjoy Lake Gregory
