WE HAD A BLAST!

Thank you!

 

Our winners have been announced!

 

Cobourg, ON – The 9TH Annual Cobourg Sandcastle Festival held on Cobourg’s beautiful beach on August 2  was a huge success attracting 60 amateur teams (coming from as far as Barrie, Oakville, Brockville, Toronto and Ottawa) and 10 Master sculptors from Ontario, Quebec and Northern Michigan.  From castles, spiderman, sea shells, planes, OLAF, rhinoceros, alligators, dragons, and yes even castles the professional and amateurs wowed over 5000 visitors.
