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.
