Ocean Beach sandcastle contest rescheduled

Join SFBay on Ocean Beach Saturday, November 9 for theĀ 30th annual edition of Leap’s sandcastle contest.

This month’s federal government shutdown had forced organizers to postpone the contest just days before its originally scheduled Oct. 12 date.

Leap’s sandcastle contest brings hundreds of local elementary school students together with representatives from some of the largest architecture and building firms in the Bay Area, with the event serving as Leap’s primary fundraising vehicle.

Leap provides arts education programs to more than 30 schools and 7,000 students across the San Francisco Bay Area. SFBay is a media sponsor of the sandcastle contest.
