2016 Winners

The 2016 Quality Foods Canadian Open Sand Sculpting Competition in Parksville was a great success, with record attendance over a three day period July 15-17. The visitor count was 14,122, which is the highest opening weekend attendance recorded to date. Visitors witnessed master sculptors carving sand to the theme of "things with wings". Twenty-nine (29) competitors were allotted 30 hours to convert 345 yards of sand into sculptures based on the community-selected theme. Parksville Beach Festival Society awarded a total of $43,000 to sculptors Sunday evening. The results of the competition are below.
