2023 Annual Sandcastle Contest Notice


WINDHAM, NY – In celebration of the Fourth of July holiday weekend, the Town of Windham and Windham Foundation will host the annual Stars & Stripes Sandcastle Contest at CD Lane Park on Tuesday, July 4, 2023, from 11:00 am – 12:45 pm. Check-in begins at 11:00. 

“This event is all about families coming out to have fun,” said Windham Town Supervisor Thomas Hoyt. 

Using tools of the trade— sand and water—plus whatever can be found in nature to decorate their creation, children will have a chance to win prizes for the most creative; the most patriotic; and, the most unique designs. 

Participants are encouraged to bring beach spades, shovels, and pails to facilitate their design. Beach chairs, blankets, towels, sun hats, sun block and bathing suits are also recommended.  As a reminder, all participants must be accompanied by an adult. 

To top the day off, ice cream will be served, compliments of Hickory Hill Market. 

Registration forms can be found at:
