With the help of ten truckloads of sand, The Magic House's backyard will be transformed once again into a beachfront park for the popular Sandcastle Beach exhibit.
Visitors can take a stroll along the boardwalk, search for some seashells at the shell dig, relax under a colorful beach umbrella and build their own sandcastles too. See world champion sculptor Dan Belcher's gigantic 75-ton sandcastle!
Sandcastle Beach is open during regular Magic House hours through July 4 and is included with admission.
