Islanders celebrate it! Winter Texans wait for it! Nearly a hundred thousand people will enthusiastically flock to Port Aransas for it! This weekend, our Port A beach proudly transforms into the epicenter for one of the most exciting festivals in the country – SandFest! The Gulf of Mexico will become the backdrop to America’s largest sand castle building competition; where people stand in awe to watch the master artists, down to the youngest amateurs, dig into the sand and build their latest masterpieces. Food and craft vendors line the beach to sell their products as renowned sand artists build some of the most intricate, and exquisitely detailed sand sculptures you have ever seen. If you have never experienced it, swing by the beach and see why we are so excited this weekend is finally here! Amanda G.
