On Thursday July 9, 2015, the Town of Huntington will hold its Fourth Annual Sand Castle Contest, sponsored by La Casa Café, in conjunction with the Movies on The Lawn program at Crab Meadow Beach in Northport. The Sand Castle Contest is open to Huntington residents in two age categories: Ages 16 & Under and Ages 17 & Up. Residents can register for the contest through the Town's website at www.HuntingtonNY.gov/sandcastlecontest
Contestants will be allowed to use additional materials to accessorize their sand castles. However, we encourage you to build sculptures that are environmentally friendly. Sand castles will be judged based on Creativity, Resourcefulness, Originality, and Accessories. Two winners - one from each age category - will receive gift certificates to La Casa Café.
Gates for the contest area will open at 4 p.m. Judging will begin at 7:30 p.m.
In the event of inclement weather, the Sand Castle Contest will be cancelled and Raiders of the Lost Ark will be held indoors in the ELWOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL Auditorium at 478 Elwood Road, in Elwood and will begin at 7:30 p.m.
