The shores of Siletz Bay will come alive with marine life, castles and characters of all kinds this Saturday, Aug. 10, as the Bay Area Merchants Association presents the Lincoln City Sandcastle Contest.

Registration for the contest begins at 11 am off SW 51st Street in the Historic Taft District. Registration is free, but a donation of a nonperishable food item per person is encouraged — all donations benefit the Lincoln City Food Pantry.

Only sand, water, shells and other natural beach materials found on the beach that day can be used for construction. Forms can be used in the construction process but cannot support the final structure. Hand tools are allowed, but not power tools. This is an amateur competition—professional “sand artists” are disqualified from winning prizes.

For more information, contact the Bay Area Merchants Association at BAMAdowntownmngr@gmail.com or call 541-921-9329.
