[DNR] Sand sculpture contest at Indiana Dunes State Park rescheduled for Aug. 23
Start Date: 8/23/2014Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 8/23/2014
Entry Description
Indiana Dunes State Park’s 17th annual sand sculpture contest has been rescheduled to Saturday, Aug. 23.

The event was rescheduled due to inclement weather on the original July 12 event date.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. CDT on the west end of the pavilion. Judging begins at noon, followed by awards at 1 p.m. Teams wanting a jump start may begin at 7 a.m.

This year's theme is "Into the Wild." Sculptures that follow the theme will earn extra points from judges. Prizes will be awarded in two categories, one for teams of children ages 15 and younger and another for groups of fewer than eight people. Observers can vote for their favorite in the "Viewer's Choice Award" between noon and 1 p.m.

"Mother Nature didn’t play well for the first time in sand sculpture history on July 12," said Brad Bumgardner, interpretive naturalist. "We’ll take another swing at it and hope for better weather in August.”

Participation is free after paying the standard gate fee of $5 per Indiana vehicle and $10 per out-of-state vehicle. Additional prize sponsorship comes courtesy of Chesterton Feed and Garden Center and The Schoolhouse Shop.

For more information, call (219) 926-1390.

Indiana Dunes State Park is at 1600 North 25 E. Chesterton, 46304.
