North Beach was the place to be for beach volleyball action Saturday. The EVP Beach Sports Festival presented by Real Racine had 28 pro teams. Don’t miss the women’s finals at 10 a.m. SUNDAY followed by the men’s finals.

Despite a cool, gusty breeze off the lake at times, a good crowd stuck around to catch the action.

Hard-fought matches among the two-member men’s teams.

The women’s semi-finals.

For those who got tired of volleyball, there was plenty of great North Beach sand!
