MALAGASH, N.S. – The Malagash Sandcastle Festival attracted less people this year, but the people who did participate had perfect conditions to build sandcastles.

The Cornelissen family weren’t building anything at the beach but were having fun playing in the sand. The are: (from left) 10-year-old Keira, five-year-old Caeley, and four-year-old Carter. They are from Niagara Falls, Ont., and say they love the area and would like to move here.
The festival didn’t attract as many people as in previous years. It may have been because there was a possibility of thundershowers, but the weather held off and it turned out to be a beautiful day.
