The Sand Castle Trail has a new lease on life! The town of South Padre Island has committed $20,000 in matching funds to make the trail a reality throughout the summer and fall of 2013, leading up to the 26th annual South Padre Island Sand Castle Days master sand sculptors sand sculpture competition, scheduled for Oct. 3-6, 2013.

The NEW South Padre Island Sand Castle Trail is in full swing. Our freshly-updated map has 32 little pins stuck in it! Not all sculptures have been completed yet, but over the next few weeks visitors and residents should see several more sculptures popping up -- and if they are lucky will actually catch the artists in the act of creation.
Work on individual sculptures started over the summer, with all sculptures scheduled to be completed by the end of October. Sculptures are treated with a sealant and are expected to last for months.
