Sandcastle competition held

2:41 pm on 23 January 2012

Christchurch hosted an inaugural New Zealand sandcastle competition at the weekend.


The event was organised by the Pegasus Bay Charitable Trust and is being held on New Brighton beach, with public competitions and displays from award-winning United States sand sculptors.

Trust spokesperson Brian Keeley hoped that having US champions showing their skills would inspire competitors to a higher standard.

Cash prizes were offered for the winning entries. About 12,000 people attended.
