Family Sandcastle Building Day
Saturday, July 27, 2019
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM


Relive your favorite memories and create new ones during CMA's Family Sandcastle Building Day.

All you need to bring is your best sandcastle building tools, a little shovel and bucket, and your castle creativity to this fun beach event. The sand on Cabrillo Beach will be thoroughly wet down to prepare for sand construction; the rest is up to you!

All castle styles are welcome: moats, draw bridges, spires, windows, turrets, let your imagination run wild, but most importantly, have a great time at the beach with family and loved ones. Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture Kodak moments and your sandcastle handiwork.

This is a free event open to everyone.
