Castle competition at Rehoboth Beach [photos]

For 37 summers they’ve been building sandcastles as competition in Rehoboth Beach.

Each year the competitors seem to out do each other.  The year you could see castles, creatures, planes, cars, and anything that your imagination could craft out of a bucket of sand and some water.

With temperatures creeping into the high 80’s, the sunshine brought out that creative streak in many of the contributors.  The event is sponsored by the Rehoboth-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce.
