Two sculptors will attempt to create Manitoba’s largest sand castle this weekend at Grand Beach.
Curtis Fehr and longtime area carver Randy Ptashnick plan to reach 12-feet in height by the time the weekend is over.
“There is no current Manitoba record that I know of, so I decided to start one,” Fehr said.
Fehr’s largest sand castle to date is just over eight-feet tall.
“It will be fun regardless, but knowing that people are excited for us to finish and to see how it turns out will make it even better.”
The build will be free for the public to attend as they help cheer on Fehr and Ptashnick. The following weekend, August 11, will be the traditional Grand Beach International Sand Castle Competition. Anyone can enter the build and earn a chance to win the $2,500 grand prize.
