You’ve probably seen some good sand castles in your day. You’ve probably even seen some amazing sand castles. Maybe you’ve even made one that was Instagram-worthy. But you’ve never seen the likes of these insanely-crazy-perfect-mega-detailed masterpieces from Parksville, B.C.’s annual Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition (unless you attended one in the past 34 years). These are the best of the best making the best. People literally come from around the world to compete in this sand castle extravaganza.

This year’s theme is ‘things with wings’ and people got pretty creative with it. Some of these are seriously clever. Last year the sand castle competition drew a crowd of over 104, 000 people but that’s not the only thing to do on the beach this month. The competition is part of Parksville’s Beach Fest and there are various beach-type events on until August 14th. We would strongly suggest checking them out at some point.

Our biggest question: what happens to all these works of art at the end of the festival?
