Imperial Beach - City Hall says
The Sun & Sea Festival (http://sunandseafestival.com/) got its name from Imperial Beach's original public festival beginning in 1960 to celebrate the city's incorporation. Imperial Beach also was the site of the U.S. Open Sandcastle Competition for 32 years, from 1980 to 2011. When that annual event ended, the Port of San Diego decided to initiate a more family-oriented event for the Imperial Beach community.

IB Kids Fest at Pier Plaza started in June 2012, and then reignited the tradition of the original IB celebration with a new Sun & Sea Festival, featuring a professional sand sculpture display and the children's Kids 'N Kastles competition, in June 2013.

2015 will see further reintegration of the best of both historical events. The Sun & Sea Festival will expand on the family-oriented theme by adding an expanded Farmer's Market and International Food Fair showcasing all that Imperial Beach has to offer. On the sand, competition will return to the event with teams vying for honors in sand sculpting prowess on the north side of the pier and Kids 'n Kastles returns to the south of the pier.

Mark you calendars for July 17 - 18 to be close to home and the 2015 Sun & Sea Festival in Imperial Beach.
