A Cannon Beach tradition starting in June 1964, Sandcastle Weekend attracts thousands of visitors and locals, who come to build fanciful creations or just watch the fun.
The contest includes divisions ranging from Masters, who create amazing sculptures, to groups and children ready for creative fun in the sand.
