The Village of Croton-on-Hudson Department of Recreation held its annual “Sand Castle Building Contest” on Wednesday, July 26, 2006, at Silver Lake Park.

Sand builders were allowed the entire day—starting at 11:00 AM—to work on their creations with a panel of judges set to evaluate the entries at 5:00 PM and declare winners from four different age groups.

Unfortunately, at around 4:00 PM, severe thunderstorms and heavy rains closed the beach causing the castle designers to “call it a day.”

Though the work day ended early for the contestants, the judges were able to cull a list of winners and make it available the next day at Silver Lake Park where prize medals were also distributed to the top builders.
