About 800 people packed their beach towels, donned their jandals and popped over to Whites Bay for the annual MoreFM Beach Day on Saturday.
Hundreds took part in a mad scramble for popsicle sticks buried on the popular beach, with successful searchers earning their share of more than $5000 worth of prizes.
And budding architects showed off their creative sand creations in the Jennian Homes sandcastle competition.
Sponsored by MTF Finance, Blenheim owner Eva Francis says they’re proud to support the community.
“It’s so great to see people at Whites Bay – MoreFM have done a great job.
MoreFM presenter Georgia Watt says this year’s sandcastles were a step-up from last years.
“The calibre of the sand sculptures has definitely improved,” she says.
“It’s just so great to have the event – to have the community come together.”
