Images from Coney Island’s 27th Annual Sand Sculpting Contest

This weekend saw the welcome return of the Coney Island Sand Sculpting Contest. Now in its 27th year, the festival attracts artists from far and wide, here are the awesome sculptures they created. 

Saturday saw some beautiful weather, temperatures in the 80’s with a soft breeze to keep you cool… in short, it was beach weather. Those of you who made it to Coney Island Beach and Boardwalk maybe had the chance to see some of the surprising creations at 27th Annual Coney Island Sand Sculpting Contest.

Presented by Brooklyn Community Services, Neptune/Sixth, and Astella Development Corp and Alliance, the Sand Sculpting Contest attracts sculptors of all ages and experience levels vying for the $500 grand prize. The four categories for winners were individuals, groups, families, and the people’s choice award.
