Photos: Milford sand sculpture contest's in-person aspect was canceled, but people still showed up

The 44th annual sand sculpture contest in Milford was supposed to kick off this weekend with a hybrid model of in-person sculpting at Walnut Beach and virtual entries. But organizers last minute canceled the in-person aspect due to the weather forecast.

With sunny skies overhead despite the forecast, however, some people still showed up Sunday afternoon in person to build their masterpieces.

The Milford Arts Council said on Facebook that participants have until July 25 to turn in their online submissions.
