For some reason, the Castles in the Sand event seems to be held every year on the chilliest Saturday in May.
But for many other reasons, no one cares.
It’s one of the most intriguing events on the civic calendar.
It brings a variety of Westport organizations — plus families and friends — to Compo Beach for good-natured competition.
And it’s fun.
This year, approximately 40 “lots” were sold.
That’s a lot of sand. A lot of creativity. And a lot of much-needed funds for Homes With Hope, the non-profit that does so much housing good, for so many.
