The Recreation Commission and Charlotte Recreation held a beach sculpture challenge this fall. Inspired by visitors creating displays over the summer, Recreation Commission Chair Bill Fraser-Harris said they decided to “put it out to the community as a great way for kids and adults alike to be creative in a safe, open air, and community fun-based pastime. The low lake level gave us a perfect working palette and residents stepped up, kids and adults alike.” Entries all got a free beach pass for next summer.

Fraser-Harris also said, “The challenge is open potentially over the winter, as lake levels remain low and ice and snow may become part of the artist’s medium.”
