Hunting Island State Park was named a Top 25 beach by TripAdvisor users. This file photo was taken during a Friends of Hunting Island annual Sand Sculpture Contest.

The 7th annual Sand Sculpture Contest at Hunting Island State Park will be held at noon July 26 at the beach at the lighthouse.

The contest is free and open to children, adults, families and even teams. Materials for the sculptures are limited to those found at the beach, but participants may bring hand and sculpting tools.

Heritage Steel Band will perform during the competition and awards in each age and group category will be presented at 3:30 p.m. The contest is hosted by the Friends of Hunting Island.
