On October 6, 2013 the 52nd Annual Sandcastle Contest was held in Corona del Mar. This event is put together every year by the Chamber of Commerce. From young to old to professional sand sculptors like us, there was high participation from the community!
Spooky sand sculptures lined the shore for this years theme “Haunted Castles”. Everything from witches to graveyards decorated the beach, even a few pumpkins and some ironic White House structures noting “now this is scary”.
Unfortunately, we were unable to attend this year due to prior commitments, but the event seemed to go off without a hitch and the designs were creative and well done. We wanted to show recognition to the contest and the participants within the community since we couldn’t be there in person. Hopefully we can make it out next year!

With summer coming to an end, you may want to pack a bag and head up to Northern California where they are preparing for the 30th Annual Leap Sandcastle Contest at Ocean Beach. This year’s theme “Masterpieces of Sand” is bound to bring out the creativity in the sculptures. The event was originally scheduled in October but was rescheduled to November 9, 2013.

Archisand is excited for all of the upcoming events planned, and will be posting pictures of the upcoming, exciting projects we are working on.
So if you are looking to have your own sandcastle design made for a special event, or market your company keep Archisand in mind for all of your sand needs!
Disney Corporation asked us to create the Disney Fantasy castle in sand for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation fund raiser event in Century City, Los Angeles.
We were glad to help out.

Last night Dwight King scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, Jonathan Quick made 18 saves, and the Los Angeles Kings rolled to the brink of their first Stanley Cup final in 19 years with a 2-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes.
7 Archisand sand sculptors took 2 days and turned 25 tons of sand into a 12′ tall sand sculpture of the LA Kings logo, jerseys, numbers, and even goalie, Jonathan Quick!
Fans celebrated around the final sculpture after the finishing touches went on last night at the first home game for the Kings this series.

Archisand is making our first appearance at the Dana Point Festival of Whales!
The Dana Point Festival of Whales draws over 100,000 visitors in the first two weeks of March every year. The whales are already here and in numbers larger than in recent memory. This year Archisand led a large group of community volunteers to construct an amazing Festival of Whales sand sculpture at Baby Beach, Dana Point Harbor, California. The Sculpture was amazing. Check out the time lapse video. The color LED lighting was so cool! Click HERE or use this link to view the video! http://youtu.be/Fp4NIu_FkyY
