Sand sculpting competition returns to Cadboro Bay

Sun, sand, singing and bouncy castles

The sun was shining and the sculptors were sculpting at the Cadboro Bay Festival on Sunday (Aug. 7) at Cadboro-Gyro Park.

The festival was returning for the first time since 2019.

The centre-piece of the event was the sand sculpting competition, with four different sculptures being made. Sculptors began work Saturday and were working on the clock to finish their pieces before 3 p.m. Sunday, at which points residents’ votes were tallied and a winner picked.

There were also inflatable slides and bouncy castles, information displays, arts and crafts stations, Hand Drum Rhythms, and food vendors.

Three local bands – Rock of Ages, Cookeilidh, and Tune Raiders – took to the stage throughout the afternoon to play some music.
