Can Your Family Win the Big Prize? Find Out at the Galveston Family Beach Challenge

Giant battleships, huge bean bags, and limbo showdowns are coming to Stewart Beach for the return of the Galveston Family Beach Challenge. The challenge, which will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 22nd, will transform a portion of Stewart Beach into a gigantic obstacle course, allowing families to compete in life-size versions of classic games.

The challenge is handcrafted for families. The City of Galveston believes in family values, and when you combine those with a fun beach challenge, you get lifetime memories with loved ones. The Galveston Beach Family Challenge puts families in competition with other families in fun games and activities for the ultimate prize in the heart of Galveston.

The course will include 14 stations for kids and adults with eight new stations this year, including a bean bag game, a life-size Battleship game, limbo, volley balloon, “beam” bag, giant Connect Four and more. Classic favorites like giant Jenga and dominoes, sack races and sandcastle building will return this year as well.

Play your way to the top and your family could take home an amazing prize! First-place winners will take home a prize package valued at $2,000. The second-place team will win $500 in prizes, and the third-place team will win $250 in prizes.
