Clam Harbour Beach Sandcastle Competition

Clam Harbour Beach Sandcastle Competition

Sunday, August 16, 2015 - Rain or Shine!
(Gates open at 9:00 am)

Clam Harbour Beach is a long, beautiful white sand beach within the Halifax Regional Municipality. For the past 35 years, the Clam Harbour Beach Sandcastle Competition has attracted hundreds of contestants and thousands of spectators.

EVENT UPDATES:

1. PARKING

Once the parking lot fills up, you'll be required to park on the road. Parking is only permitted on the RIGHT hand side of the road as you drive towards the beach. Please respect this request as it permits for easy shuttle bus access and emergency access. No Parking signs are posted along the route as a reminder.

2. ROAD CLOSURE

Depending on the amount of traffic coming in and out of the beach parking lot, there may be a temporary closure of the Clam Harbour Beach Road (at the bridge heading into the beach) to safely allow exiting traffic to leave. (Usually everyone wants to leave between 4 and 6 pm, this will allow us to speed up the shuttle buses departure from the site and get people back to their vehicles!)

3. PICK UP / DROP OFF ZONE

Pick up and drop off is only permitted in the designated spots.

4. DOGS

Only service animals are permitted on the shuttle buses. We recommend you leave your pets at home due to the sunny & hot weather and crowds.

5. ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES

No alcoholic beverages are allowed in the park / on the beach!
