    Mounds of sand line the B Street Pier along San Diego's Embarcadero, just waiting for a sand sculptor to get inspired.

    The event kicks off Friday, Sept. 2 is one of our Things to Do This Labor Day Weekend.

    San Diegans can stroll along the pier and watch the sandcastles gradually appear.
