Maybe it was the cool, dry evening or just the sheer joy of playing in the water, but nearly every creation at City’s annual sandcastle/sculpture contest had a moat.
This year’s contest was held on July 13 at Clark Street Beach. There were no official “rules,” but builders used pails, cans, shovels and other tools brought from home, as well as feathers and rocks found on the beach.
Brett Pettinger, lakefront supervisor, and a crew of lifeguards surveyed the sandy kingdoms and, just after sundown, announced the winners:
Best Overall Castle: David Rotter
Largest Castle: Michael and Murphy, Tommy and Mickey Haughey
Best Family Effort: Kate Altay and daughters Skylar and Sienna
