Mark Mason and his "Team Sandastic" arrived at our plaza at midnight last night, and began sculpting an amazing sandcastle for our crowd. WATCH VIDEO. Mark has taken the art of sandcastle building to a whole new level, having just been crowned by the Guinness Book of World Records for the tallest sandcastle ever -- a whopping 43-foot creation in Myrtle Beach last month. Mark has been professionally building sandcastles for the past 16 years, with his occupation taking him to the Caribbean, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Europe, South America, and all throughout the US. I think it's pretty cool that he gets to make a living out of something that's so much fun for him. Check out some of the photos of his castle from this morning.
