DSSP Thanks Sponsors for Sandcastle Contest Support

by Dave on July 29, 2010

On behalf of Delaware Seashore State Park I would like to express how grateful we are to the local businesses of Fenwick Island, Bethany Beach, Dewey Beach, and Rehoboth Beach for all of their generous donations to our 30th annual Sand Castle Contest. Without all of the amazing donations we received, the contest would not have been such a great success.

The event took place on Saturday, July 10th and drew a crowd of about 100 participants, despite rainy weather conditions. We were able to send every single one of our competitors home with a prize! This would never have been possible without the generosity of the following businesses: Sea Shell City, Seaside Country Store, Blue Heron Gifts, A Novel Idea, Sweets n’ Treats, Indulgence, McCabe’s Gourmet Market, Sea Level Designs Inc, Bethany Surf Shop, Handbags and Accessories, Sand Palace Motel, Ruddertown, Scully’s Café, Wings To Go, Alley Oop, BooksandCoffee, Franco’s Pizza, Ed’s Chicken n’ Crabs, Mama Celeste’s, Nick’s Cheese Steaks, Muncheezzz, Mama Maria, Woody’s East Coast, Starboard, Electric Banana, Venus on the Half Shell, Christmas Spirit, Dolphin Dreaming, Lily Pad, Rehoboth Beach Variety, Ryan’s Beach Store, Tanger Outlets, Delaware State Parks, Toys from the Attic, Rehoboth Toy & Kite Co., Tickled Pink, The Bake Shoppe, Dolly’s, Gidget’s Gadgets, Snyder’s Candy, Irish Eyes Pub, Boire’s Hair Design, L. Baker-Mary Kay, Bethany Plaza Scoops, Tidal Rave, Bethany Beach Florist, Beach Cottage, Angel Hair Salon, Armand’s Pizzeria, Bethany Cycle & Fitness, Cattails, Big Peaches Bar & Grill, TCBY, Mickey’s Crab House, Baja Beach Grill, Penguin Diner, Freaky Tiki Teez, Purple Parrot, Quiet Storm, The Gallery Espresso, Fischer’s, Nicola Pizza, Salt Air, Seasons Pizza, Dewey Beach Surf Shop, Rita’s Italian Ice, and Stingrays. Despite these challenging economic times, these businesses kindly donated prizes for our contest in order to support their community and the visitors to our state park.

We cannot say thank you enough to this remarkable group of local businesses. Because of them we were able to put on this free event for sand castle contest participants from Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Florida, and Virginia. Next year marks the 31st Annual Delaware Seashore State Park Sand Castle Contest and our hope is to make it an even bigger and more memorable experience for everyone who chooses to come out to participate or even just stroll around and watch the magic take shape. We sincerely appreciate your support of this and the rest of our programming efforts at Delaware Seashore State Park.
