6 Important Things To Know About The Revere Beach Sand Sculpting Festival
It’s almost here! I’m talking about the Revere Beach Sand Sculpting Festival. The annual event is organized by the Revere Beach Partnership, a non-profit organization that started in 2001. The mission of the Revere Beach Partnership is to “preserve and enhance America’s first public beach for the enjoyment of all.” That’s right, Revere Beach is America’s first public beach. The Revere Beach Sand Sculpting Festival is one of the most popular events that the Revere Beach Partnership organizes. The free event takes place on July 28th and 29th, and here’s everything you need to know.
The festival theme
The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Celebrating 90 Years of Kong.’ There will be 15 Master Sand Sculptors from around the world in a heated competition for $28,000 in prize money beginning Wednesday, July 26th through the afternoon of Saturday, July 28th.
How to get to the Revere Beach Sand Sculpting Festival
With the Sumner Tunnel closure increasing traffic, the MBTA is providing free transportation on the MBTA Blue Line! We encourage guests to take the T (which is super easy to use) and just hop off at the Wonderland or Revere Beach stations which are both within walking distance to the festival. If you are driving, the closest and most cost effective parking is at the Wonderland Station Parking Garage.
When are the fireworks?
Don’t miss the Fireworks Extravaganza. Organizers recommend getting a spot along the sea wall for the best view of the display. It will start at 9PM on Saturday, July 29th.
What is there to eat?
There will be lots of choices for when you get hungry. Lots of food trucks will be on hand. Whether you’re looking for some lobster, ice cream, hot dogs, or Chinese food, they have you covered.
What about a drink?
After exploring the festival for a bit, head to the Samuel Adams Beer Garden to unwind and soak up the festival atmosphere. Savor a refreshing selection of Samuel Adams products including Truly Seltzers, Twisted Tea, Wicked Hazy, and Angry Orchard as you mingle with fellow 21+ attendees. Raise a glass to the celebration, relax with somegames, and enjoy the live music.
Wait, I can also get a workout in?
Check out invigorating and free workout classes offered at the MoveStudios Mobile Stage with workouts on Revere Beach. There will be morning yoga sessions that allow you to
