Masterpieces in the sand
Teams of architects, designers and elementary school students have spent months planning for Leap’s 30th annual sandcastle contest, which starts at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. Marvel as San Francisco’s Ocean Beach turns into a sandy art museum – the showdown is free to observe.
Under the theme “Masterpieces in the Sand,” teams are encouraged to replicate historical works of art. Judging takes place at 2:30 p.m. and the awards ceremony begins at 3:30 p.m. near Great Highway and Balboa Street. Every year thousands attend the fundraiser, which benefits Leap, a non-profit that provides arts education in Bay Area schools. For more information, visit www.leaparts.org.
