2013 Leap Sandcastle Contest | Ocean BeachNorthern California’s largest sandcastle building event, the 30th annual Leap Sandcastle Contest is a spirited competition between teams of architects, engineers, contractors, designers and local elementary school students at Ocean Beach (just below the Cliff House).

There’s also a community castle for everyone to join in to build.

Event Update: The event was originally supposed to take place in October, but was postponed due to the government shut down. It’s now been rescheduled for November 9, 2013 from 10 am to 4:30 pm.
