Man Builds World’s Tallest Sandcastle

Ed Jarret of Farmington, CT has beaten the world record for tallest sandcastle, creating a structure that is 37-feet, 10-inches tall. Jarret had the help of 1,500 volunteers who helped him hand pack more than 1.6 million pounds of sand and water to make the sandcastle.

Originally standing 38-feet, 75-inches high, the castle’s hight succumbed slightly to weather conditions and a pesky bluebird before the structure could be evaluated by Guinness World Records. However, at 37-feet, 10-inches the castle is now officially a record breaker. In fact, it broke Jarret’s own previous world records of 29-feet (built in 2003) and 31-feet (built in 2007).
