I do!  I've always wanted to partake in this activity on Old Orchard Beach.  Usually, I find out about it after it's done.  This year, I'm being proactive.  The 32nd Annual Sand Sculpture Competition is coming to Old Orchard Beach on July 3rd.


You begin the construction of your masterpiece at 9:30am and put the finishing touches to it at 12:30pm.  Judging begins promptly at 12:45pm.  Winner announced at 2pm.
