The annual Hampton Beach Sand Sculpting Classic is back this weekend, after being moved to September last year due to the pandemic.

Themed as “Sand, Sun, and Fun 2021,” the annual invitational competition is back in its usual time of year June 17th through the 19th.

With over 200 tons of imported sand, there are over $25,000 in prizes at stake. While the competition is by invitation only, the public can view the sculptures now through June 27th, including in the evening when the area will be illuminated for night viewing.
