• Commotion in the Ocean! Carmel’s Sand Castle Contest Coming Up

    The City of Carmel-by-the-Sea’s 54th annual Great Sand Castle Contest will be held on Sunday, Oct. 19. This year’s theme will be “Commotion in the Ocean.” The co-sponsor is the Monterey Bay Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

    Registration begins on the beach that morning and judging starts at 12 noon. Contestants can begin building their creations, of all sizes, at 8 a.m.

    The city advises that for judging purposes sand castles should be built on the beach below Scenic Road and between 10th and 13th avenues, which are the contest boundaries. As this is a family event, designs should be appropriate.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm.
