Northern California’s largest sandcastle building event, the 34th 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.
