Holiday Sandcastles 2019

Sand castle days

It's Back! The Island's second annual Holiday Sandcastle Village attracted some 70,000 visitors, and isn't done yet! The tent will come down Jan. 13, but local sculptors plan to maintain some of the sculptures and re-carve the rest with a Valentine/Island theme. To that end, we are actively seeking sponsors -- See how you can help!

Group Fun Builds 2019

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.

Established in 2012, the South Padre Island Sand Sculpture Trail is a year-round attraction that is the first of its kind - and "Easter Egg Hunt" approach to discovering  a variety of sand sculptures created by some of the most talented artists in the world. SII is committed to helping sustain and grow the trail.  more info....
