The Sandcastle Competition is an annual event which takes place at the beach in Hout Bay in Cape Town, South Africa. The Competition is well organised by the Hout Bay's Valley Pre-Primary school and is supported and enjoyed by locals and visitors from around the country. The event raises funds for education projects and funds will also go towards bursaries for underprivileged children at Valley Pre-Primary school and in the Hout Bay area.
The whole family is welcome to join in the competition and enjoy the day together having lots of fun. There will be exciting entertainment for the family from jumping castles, face painting, magicians and of course the sand castle competition. There will also be a variety of stalls with delicious eats and something to quench your thirst.
