More than 200 people gathered at Marina Beach in Edmonds Tuesday, July 25, for the annual Sand Sculpting contest. The sunny and hot morning drew families, friends, adults and lots of kids.

Participants arrived at 10 a.m. and signed up for one of the three categories – children’s for ages 14 and under with no adult help; family for groups with adults; and daycamp/large group category for day camps and large groups.

The three volunteer judges were Mayor Dave Earling, Edmonds Boys & Girls Club Unit Director Brandi Loveless and city of Edmonds Economic Development Commissioner Jamie Reece.
