Taft Beach Sandcastle Contest
The Taft Beach Sandcastle Contest is held annually in the historic Taft District in Lincoln City from 11am to 5pm and is sponsored by the Bay Area Merchants Association.
Competition categories include groups, pairs, individuals (over 12 years old) and kids (12 years old and under). Entry location on the beach will be determined by category. Specialized categories such as Best Dog, Best Cat, Best Sandcastle, Best Mo's Chowder Hat and others will also be available. A $100 cash prize will be given for each category winner, and the kids category will have 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners with each taking home a "Beach Bucket Surprise." Judging will take place at 3:30pm, with winners announced shortly thereafter. Meanwhile, visitors can enjoy live music from local DJ Brett Lucich.
