While there were a good bit fewer entries this year (it's hard to compete with a record turnout) into the Piccolo Spoleto Sand Sculpting Competition, there was no shortage of enthusiasm (or creativity).

The Post and Courier has a solid write-up from the event on Isle of Palms; you can read it here and check out their photo gallery here. Local blogger Vacation Rick also has some photos.

And here's the rundown on the winners:

- Best of Children's: Bee Green

   Only 1 Young Adult Team competing
- Best of Family: Tubers
- Most Creative: Biccolo Spoleto
