Come to Cannon Beach for the 59th annual sandcastle building competition. The most popular event during the summer in Cannon Beach, it is an event not to be missed. Talented builders create amazing works of art out of sand that only last the one day. Divisions of the contest include Sand Fleas, Juniors, Teens, Small Group, Large Group, and Masters. Come watch the teams create their master works on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There will be crowds, but the memories will last forever. The fun weekend starts on Friday 5pm with a parade. Saturday there is a pancake feed, and following the judging will be live music and a bonfire. The weekend concludes with a fun run on the beach Sunday morning.
