The world's tallest sand castle (Castle of the Sun)
"Castle of the Sun" Ed Jarrett collapses in exhaustion after completing his world-record 31.7-foot-high sand castle Castle of the Sun at the Point Sebago Resort in Casco, Maine. Jarrett, who organized the "Castle to the Sun" event to raise funds for terminally ill children hope his efforts could benefit the Camp Sunshine a camp on Sebago Lake for children with life-threatening illnesses. More than 1,000 people volunteered over the past two months to help build the castle, which used 40 dump truck loads of sand, organizers said.
