Up for a Challenge? Galveston to Host Family Beach Competitions


Galveston Art League

Family Beach Challenges are free and will take place from 11am-5pm on June 17th, July 22nd, August 19th, and September 16th.

The challenge will transform a portion of Stewart Beach into a gigantic obstacle course, allowing families to compete in life-size versions of classic games. The course includes 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.  

This is free to the public and structured for groups of four people. The family with the most points at the end of the day will receive a $500 gift card plus tickets to island attractions like Schlitterbahn Waterpark, Moody Gardens, Bishop’s Palace, Moody Mansion, Ocean Star Drilling Rig Museum, Harbor Dolphin Tour, and more.

The Family Beach Challenges will be held at Stewart Beach at 6th St. and Seawall Blvd. 12 noon-5pm. Check in starts at 11am. For rules and to register in advance, go to
