Revere Beach International Sand Sculpture Festival

On Saturday, my husband and I headed on a walking adventure to Revere, MA.

It was the 12th annual Revere Beach International Sand Sculpture Festival.

We got in over 5 miles of walking and 11,984 steps.

Here’s a view of the event in some photos I took. I highly recommend checking out the Revere Beach Sand Sculpture Festival next year!

All the artists worked on the center sculpture – themed “Spirit of Massachusetts”

This one didn’t look impressive from the front, but I found out through instagram that there was something hiding on the beach side

This vendor must have been having a good day. I saw a bunch of kids wearing squid hats.

That’s the original coaster from 1925 that used to be on Revere Beach, with a pedestrian bridge from Wonderland station in the background. The beach has changed a lot over the years.

We stayed at my aunt’s condo on the beach to watch the 9 PM fireworks display with a small party of family.

I love Revere beach since I have many fond childhood memories of it. Both my parents grew up in Revere and my grandmother, great aunt & uncle, and aunt, uncle, and cousin still live in there.

  1. These are amazing! I remember going to the beach when I was little and they would sometimes have sand sculptures like these. I was always mesmerized by them!
