Join the Fun and Help Save Sea Turtles!


Hunting Island’s Annual Sand Sculpture Contest is being held Saturday, June 18, at the lighthouse beach. Free registration starts at 10 AM and prizes will be awarded at 2 PM.

This year a new award category has been included—the “People’s Choice Award.” Everyone can vote for their favorite sculpture—$1/vote. Every vote benefits sea turtles.

A silent art auction will be held that includes original works of art—paintings, prints, photographs, wreaths, and many other donated collectibles.

Children will enjoy the face painting and tie dying provided by the park. Everyone will enjoy the steel band playing lively beach music. Lunch will be available.

Check Friends of Hunting Island website for more details and tips on how to win the Sand Sculpture Contest:

All proceeds from the event benefit the Friends of Hunting Island’s Sea Turtle Conservation Project. Credit cards accepted.
