HOUSTON - If you didn’t go down to Galveston Aug. 25, you missed out! The American Institute of Architects (AIA) hosted their 32nd Annual Sandcastle Competition on Galveston’s East Beach. Over 20,000 spectators converged to witness works of art come to life in just a matter of a few hours. Judging of the sculptures was based on originality, artistic execution, technical difficulty, carving techniques, and utilization of the site with all participants in pursuit of the coveted Golden Bucket award. -cmw
