Sand Snowman Contest

December 9, 2017
8:45 AM12:00 PM

Hermosa Beach Pier

Hermosa Beach, CA 90254


The City of Hermosa Beach invites children of all ages to compete in the annual Sand Snowman Contest on Saturday, December 9 from 8:45 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Just because the South Bay doesn’t experience cold, snowy winters doesn’t mean you have to miss out on traditional winter pastimes. The South Bay may not have snow but there’s sand….lots and lots of sand. So instead of building a snowman, how about building a sand snowman?

It is recommended that you arrive early to claim a prime building site. Registration starts at 8:45 a.m. north of the Hermosa Pier at shoreline and building commences at 9 a.m.

Prizes will be awarded for the Most Unique, Most Traditional, Best Dressed, Hermosa Beach Favorite and Funniest. Judging begins at 11:15 a.m. with awards being presented at 11:30 a.m.

It’s time to assemble the construction crew, haul out the heavy equipment (pails, shovels, coal, corn cob pipe, etc) and get into a winter state of mind.

Awards and prizes are nice but bragging rights are better.

For more information, contact the Community Resources Department at 310-318-0280 or visit the website at http://www.hermosabch.org/.

The event will take place at 15 Street at the shoreline.
