We drove from Franklin NE. Out just to see this event. Had a wonderful time watching team build castles. Way more work then would expect it to be. Progress each made as hour past was amazing . We foun...d spot set up chairs and umbrella. Waded in water feet in sand. Walked up down beach seeing each castle erupt out of the beach It is Really amazing. Plan on returning hope more beach sand is available with more room to build. See More
