Pentwater Sand Sculpture contest

Join the Pentwater Service Club for their annual sand sculpting contest during the Pentwater Homecoming Celebration. This year's 48th Pentwater Sand Sculpture contest theme is "Life is Better at the Lake" . Beachgoers are invited to sculpt imaginative designs with the following guidelines:

  • Designs should be in good taste and family appropriate. 
  • Only materials found on Mears State Park beach can be used in you sculpture.
  • You may only use already uprooted dune grass in your sculpture, please don't pull live dune grass. It erodes the dunes and beach

For a complete list of guidelines and more information go to or visit Pentwater Sand Sculpture Contest Facebook page.
