NEW MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Building a sand castle is a fun, easygoing activity on the beach — for most people. But, two sculptors stepped up the game and broke records by creating the largest sand castle in Connecticut.
Acclaimed sculptors Kevin Lane of New Milford and Dan Anderson of Destin, Florida built a 15-foot-tall sand castle “just for the fun of it” at Candlewood Lake’s Lynn Deming Beach.
The castle is elevated and includes intricate line work on the turrets. “New Milford CT” is also scripted onto the front.
On Friday, the pair completed the project. Take a look at the finished product:
The project pays homage to Lane’s toy company Create a Castle, which won the Outdoor Toy of the Year award from the Toy Association of America. Create a Castle includes split molds to build snow and sand castles.
Lane, along with his wife and co-founder Laurie, will be featured on an upcoming Shark Tank episode on Oct. 7.
