Summertime & Sand Castles

Updated: Jun 13


Revere Beach, just 6 miles north of Boston, is America’s first and oldest

public beach. It also happens to be home to one of the most impressive

summertime events in the country - The International Sand Sculpting

Festival.


Every year, sculptors from around the globe assemble on Revere Beach to

compete for the grand prize, and coveted title of being the year’s best of

the best in sand sculpting.


Utilizing more than 12-tons of sand trucked in just for this event, artists will

have for 4 days to create their sandy masterpieces.


This year’s theme is “Wonders of the World.” Artists can choose any

design they wish to portray the theme, but are not permitted to use

anything other than water and sand for the build.


The sculptures are truly magnificent. The complexity of the designs, the

details worked just perfectly into the sand, and the shear magnitude of the

sculptures themselves are difficult to imagine until you’ve seen them first

hand.


This year’s festival runs July 22 - July 24. It is a FREE event with live

music, food vendors, and fireworks.
