This annual Castles & Kites celebration in Bodega Bay has everything it takes to be a crowd pleaser; the festivities take place at Doran Regional Park. It’s not for the faint of heart; however, castle building can be a serious undertaking. But don’t worry park representatives are on hand to give you the tools and molds to make your castle the best it can be. Also on hand are expert sand castle artists that make huge sand castles. Things you need to know? If you don’t have an annual park pass, you’ll need to by a $6 day use permit, which includes parking. Dogs must be on a leash. To become a parks member just go to the Sonoma County Parks website.
