Family Sandcastle Building Day
July 28, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Relive your favorite memories and create new ones during Cabrillo Marine Aquarium’s Family Sandcastle Day! This event is free and open to everyone. All you need to bring is your best sandcastle building tools, a little shovel and bucket, and your castle creativity to this fun beach event. The sand on Cabrillo Beach will be thoroughly wet down to prepare for sand construction; the rest is up to you!
All castle styles are welcome: moats, draw bridges, spires, windows, turrets; let your imagination run wild, but most importantly, have a great time at the beach with family and loved ones. Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture Kodak moments and your sandcastle handiwork.
If you don’t have beach building tools on hand, stop by the Gift Shop for supplies. While you’re here visit the Aquarium exhibit hall, which features 37 tanks containing the largest collection of Southern California marine life in the world and a touch tank that provides up-close encounters with local marine life.
