Guy Builds the World’s Tallest Sandcastle

created at: 06/23/2011

Ed Jarret has recently completed the world’s tallest sandcastle on a beach in Farmington, CT. It took about six weeks to pile up the sand, and eleven days to sculpt it into shape. It’s constructed from more than a million pounds of sand and 5,000 hours of combined labor, it sits at 35 ft. tall, and was built entirely to raise cash for charity.

Obviously, that’s a huge and awesome sandcastle, but I gotta admit, I thought the world’s record would be a little taller.

That’s crazy awesome. Has anyone from New England seen this thing in person? Amazing?
