While filming wildlife over the past week at Revere and Winthrop Beaches, it has been fascinating to see the sand sculptures taking shape for this weekend’s festive International Revere Beach Sand Sculpting exhibit and competition. The theme is “Celebrating Literacy,” and the sculptors have created interpretations of favorite works of literature written for children, teens and adults. A storybook castle is the centerpiece of the exhibit. It’s all so beautifully ephemeral. The whimsical sculptures will be gone next week.
The festival begins today, Friday, July 20th and runs through Sunday, July 22nd. A ferris wheel and merry-go-round add to the fun, and a fireworks display over Revere Beach is scheduled for Saturday night. The event is free and open to the public. Attached is the complete schedule. For more information visit: http://reverebeachpartnership.com/
