Giant Sandbox

Who doesn’t love playing in the sand?  We’re creating a gigantic sandbox at Walleye Weekend in 2024.  Kids of all ages can enjoy building their own sand castles, sand-sculpted creatures, and finding hidden gems within the sand.  With help from our sponsor, we’ll be hiding colored golf balls good for special prizes redeemed at the Kids Connection Tent at the times listed below (located in Familyland).  Better start digging!

Green Golf ball = Big Prize
Orange Golf ball = Bigger Prize
Blue Golf ball = Biggest Prize
