On Saturday August 31, 2013, Maliblue Oyster Bar, At Hempstead Town’s Malibu Beach, held their first annual Seaside Sand-Sculpting Spectacular Competition.
Prizes were sponsored by Maliblue and announced by Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray.
Frank Russo and Joe Slaboda were announced the 1st place winners. They received a $500 check for their spired castle and continued sculpting their masterpiece anyway.
Is an artists work truly ever done?
Other prizes included gift cards to Maliblue in pretty good denominations!
Second prize went to Dylan Riley for the castle and fish design.
3rd place Mike and Mary Deery for their sea turtles design.
In the 12 and under category, top prize went to William and Christian Vallone.
Genevieve Riley marched up and beamed with pride to receive her prize for her sand octopus.
The Sculptures and castles will be on display at the beachfront At Town Of Hempstead’s Malibu Beach for the remainder of the Labor Day weekend
Supervisor Kate Murray closed saying “We’ll see you back here next year for the second annual contest!”
Great show from all the contestants!
I can see the competition brewing for next year, already!
