See what amazing creations master sculptors can make with 200 tons of sand at the Hampton Beach Sand Sculpting Classic!
I’m always amazed when I see pictures or videos of sand sculptures! Major props to the people who create these masterpieces. I don’t know how they do it nevermind how they stay intact! The Hampton Beach Sand Sculpting Classic is underway now and continues through tomorrow (Saturday, June 18th).
According to the Hampton Beach website, $25,000 worth of prizes will be awarded to the contestants which includes a “People’s Choice Award.” Voting for that is happening tomorrow from 1-3pm. There’s also a “Sculptor’s Choice Award.” Even though the winner doesn’t get a cash prize, I’m thinking that would be a cool peer-chosen award to receive.
If you want to see who wins what, the awards ceremony is taking place tomorrow night at 8pm on the Sea Shell Stage and their will be a special fireworks display at 9:30pm. Sounds like a fun Saturday night at the beach!
But if you can’t make it this weekend, you’ll still be able to check out the sand sculptures until June 26th. You can even check them out after dark, as the sculptures are lighted for nightly viewing.
Here’s video of the kickoff (air horn included) of the Hampton Beach Sand Sculpting Classic from their official Facebook page:
If Hampton Beach is too far for you to travel because of the ridiculous gas prices and you live in the Revere area, you could check out the Revere Beach International Sand Sculpting Festival next month. Get details about that sand sculpting event here.
