The Long Beach Peninsula hosts the SandSations sand building contest each July. The festivities begin this Wednesday. "SandSations has been a favorite event in Long Beach, Washington for more than 25 years. Run wholly by volunteers, the event draws visitors from around the globe to participate and to watch the fun," states SandSations.
