Canada 150 Parksville Sandcastle Competition

Never thought I’d see Justin Beiber as a Beaver in Sand.

I’m sure many people have heard of sandcastle competitions or maybe some haven’t. Either way, the competition that happens every year in Parksville, BC, I think, has some of the best talent in the world.

Of course, for 2017, the theme isĀ Canada 150. There was no shortage of Canadian icons and creative spirit.

The Parksville Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition has been happening for the past 35 years and going strong! It is the only competition in Canada in which Canadian artists can qualify for the World Championship of Sand Sculpting.

I am not the greatest photographer so my photos aren’t professional but I think I did ok. You can obviously tell which I like best. I couldn’t get all the detail for some of them, as some sculptures have 360 view.

To get this out of the way, (mainly because I don’t particularly like Justin Beiber) but here you go, fans, Beibs as a Beaver in sand!

I do hope that Canada does well in the World Competition, since you can tell we have some amazing talent!
