Incredible Sculptures at New Zealand Sandcastle Competition

1082141577

The 3rd New Zealand Sandcastle Competition took place over the weekend, on February 8th, drawing in crowds of participants and viewers. Both professional and amateur sandcastle builders took part in the fun summer festivities on New Brighton Beach, constructing their elaborate designs with unique methods of molding grains of sand together and carving into the fragile material.

While expert sand sculptors Rusty Croft and Sue McGrew masterfully worked on their powerful Maori sculpture for a few days leading up to the event, others attended the festival and made it a fun family affair. Children and adults alike turned out for the competition, getting down and dirty (literally) to produce intricately ornate and creative pieces on the beach.
