Head over to Pier Plaza this July for the annual Sun & Sea Festival in Imperial Beach. This world-class sandcastle competition is a fun event for the whole family and includes a lineup of activities, a parade, and a food fair.
This year's event kicks off with the Imperial Beach Pier Swim & Paddle bright and early on Friday at 8 a.m. You can join participants at the Mayor's Breakfast that morning and see the sandcastle displays starting at noon. The Sandcastle Ball is held on Friday night and the fun starts again on Saturday with a pancake breakfast before the parade that runs down Imperial Beach Boulevard and Seacoast Drive, all the way down to Dunes Park.
If you're bringing the kids, don't miss the chance to spend some time in the Kids Zone where kids can show off their sandcastle-building skills and enter to win prizes during the Kids n' Kastles competition. You'll find plenty of great food to enjoy at the International Food Fair and can also pick up some fresh, local food at the Farmer's Market. This year's event takes place July 15 and 16, 2016.
Pier Plaza is just a few blocks away from the Pier South Resort so guests at the resort are less than a 5-minute walk from all the fun this summer. Enjoy modern accommodations, easy access to the beautiful beaches, and a taste of the sophisticated southern California lifestyle at our beachfront resort.
