2021 THEME

2021 Theme: Onward and Upward!

The theme for this year’s Sandcastle Season is “Onward and Upward!” as we’re embracing the sensation of moving forward, looking ahead, coming together, and returning to all that we love and have missed-Back at the Beach! We’re reaching above and beyond, and can’t wait to see teams’ creative interpretations of the theme!
