Cannon Beach Sandcastle Contest featured on NBC News

Cannon Beach’s 54th annual Sandcastle Contest was featured last night on the NBC Nightly News.

Anchorman Lester Holt, who recently visited the Portland area, narrated the story that wrapped up the evening news broadcast.

With Haystack Rock as a backdrop, drone photography showcased the incredible sand creations.  It also showed how the tide washed away the notable efforts.   Masters and amateurs compete in the one-day event.

One featured family shared how they have gathered for 9 years of competitions.  The Cannon Beach Sandcastle Contest anchors their annual family reunion.

Said Holt, “While the sandcastles may wash away, the memories don’t.”
