Sandcastle Contest 2021
The 13th Bellport Village Program Fund Sand Castle contest was held on Sunday September 5 and was a huge success! A lot of credit goes to the families who had to juggle their schedules from the original date of Saturday September 4 to Sunday September 5. This was due to an excessive amount of biting black flies at Ho Hum beach on Saturday. Once the wind changed from the north to the southwest, the contest was underway! We were pleased to see nineteen creative castles built!
The winners of the contest were as follows:
In the 0-8 year old category, the first place winner was Castle #2, Ho Huge, built by Jackson and Cody Li, second place was Castle #8, Sea Sponge Castle by Tobin Garcia, and the third place Castle was Castle #18, Shell Island, built by Lila and Emma Sanflippo.
In the 9-16 year old age category, the first place winner was Castle #37, Friendly Pickle built by Dean McKnight and Hugo Santo, second place was Castle #24, Sun Glassle built by Arun, Annita and Pria Gadkari and third place was castle #29, Aquarius built by Lila Schultz, Katie Wilson, Olivia Crabtree, Emma Gallo, Ashley Schultz, Skye Dodge and Abby Crabtree.
