10th Annual Revere Beach National Sand Sculpting Festival

Hi Folks,
The National Sand Sculpting Festival is celebrating its 10th year and attracts between 300,000-500,000 people from all over New England to see master sand-sculptors from all over the world competing for tens of thousands in prizes. The awards ceremony on Saturday night is capped off with a fireworks extravaganza. The main centerpiece sculpting begins before the individual completion between 10-15 master sculptors begins. Last year’s centerpiece sculpture was a 20 foot tall tribute to Fenway Park’s 100 years. The event also includes live music and a gourmet food truck festival.


It says that the event runs from July 19-21 and the award ceremony is on Saturday Night.
So, let's be there on Saturday afternoon and enjoy the amazing sculptures :-)

Let's all meet outside the Revere Beach T stop at 1:00 pm and move as a group :-)

Note: Parking will be very tough that weekend at the beach. If you are planning to drive, note that you might have to look for parking for a while.
If you are taking T, it is at "Revere Beach" stop on Blue Line.

    TOMORROW STORMS FORECAST FOR 4:00 PM AND 7:00 PM....OTHERWISE, GOOD WEATHER, COOLER AT THE BEACH. I WOULD LIKE TO GO AROUND 1:00 PM IF ANYONE IS WILLING TO DRIVE FROM THE ARLINGTON CENTER AREA...EASY TRIP FROM HERE THROUGH MEDFORD, EVERETT, BY-PASS CHELSEA, TO REVERE. I CAN RESERVE US A PARKING PLACE 2 BLOCKS FROM THE SAND SCULPTURE. LAST YEAR THE MUSIC AND DANCING WAS WONDERFUL, AND WE LEFT BEFORE THE FIREWORKS TO AVOID THE REALLY TERRIBLE TRAFFIC JAMS THAT THERE ARE AS FIREWORKS LET OUT AROUND 9:00 PM. SO LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT TO GO, AND DRIVE, AND GIVE ME TIME TO RESERVE THE PARKING PLACE. (TAKING A BUS AND TWO CROWDED TRAINS IN THIS HEAT TOO MUCH FOR ME; ESPECIALLY SINCE ALL THE TRAINS HAVE BEEN BREAKING DOWN FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME) ML
