North Myrtle Beach, SC - NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Playing in the sand has a different meaning for one Ohio family.  The Murphy's have made their way to the Grand Strand for the past 35 years all in the name of building massive sand sculptures.

On Tuesday the Tricia Lyn Motel will host a sand sculpture building event.  This year the Murphy's brought more than 100 people with them to help build.

The family says this year they will be building 19 characters from the new Toy Story movie.
