Revere Beach is a city beach but they have cleaned up the area a lot over the past few years and it is quite nice. Revere Beach is a National Historic Landmark for being America's first public beach.
The sand castle competition brings sculptors from all over the world which is pretty impressive. The winner gets $5,000 which isn't much when you consider their travel expenses and time! There are strict rules including only sand and water being allowed, approximately 12 tons of sand each, 30 hours of competition and only the master sculptor may work on the castle.
Since we went on Friday night the sculptors were still working on their castles. It was cool to see them in process and watch them work!
here to see the 1st Place Winner. I guess I wasn't that impressed with that castle since I didn't take a photo. Haha!
We were smart of go on Friday night because not only was the weather awesome but it wasn't too crowded. In the past we've gone on the weekend days and it has been CRAZY! This was much better (except for the fact that the castles were not 100% finished).
The rest of my weekend was spend in a conference. . . exciting stuff for me and my career but don't want to bore you with all that!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
