This past July, Eagle Street in North Adams, Mass. was transformed into a beach with beach balls, pails, shovels and 250,000 pounds of sand.

The Eagle Street Beach Party, a free event which started in 1999, is organized by the North Adams Office of Tourism and Cultural Development.  Local vendors give away prizes for creative sand castles an sculptures, and food and music cap the day.

An innovative way to transform a public space in to a surreal and delightful playground.
