The Island's first ever Holiday Sandcastle Village was created by the same sculptors who competed at Sand Castle Days in Oct. see video

SII was proud to be able to participate by raising sponsorship monies to help cover the costs of housing and feeding the sculptors.

SPI Welcome Sandcastle Renovation

SandCamp - Summer 2021

Were you able to join us for the third semi-annual "March of the SandMen"? We sure had fun, and are going to do something similar next winter, helping people just like you create a beach full of sandy valentines. Beach lounges in March; flowers in April and Mama Seaturtles in May! Follow us on Facebook for upcoming events...

The big sandcastle at the SPI end of the causeway has fallen on hard times - and we are taking on the mammoth project of renovating it. Anticipated date of completion is mid-July. Stop by and cheer us on! 

Holiday Sandcastles 2021

Due to Covid, SPI Sandcastle Days had to be cancelled in 2020. We are looking forward to coming back bigger and badder than ever in 2021. SCDays is a free family fun festival featuring sandcastle demonstrations and instruction as well as contests for both seasoned master sculptors and amateur hobbyists. more info...
