Photo Essay: Revere Beach Sand Sculptures
Every year, Revere Beach is home to Massachusetts’s most exciting sand sculpting contest! Revere Beach is located just north of Boston and is one of very few beaches accessible by T.
This year’s theme? Rapunzel! Even though the contest took place the week before, many of the sculptures were still in pristine condition, through rainstorms and everything.
Here, fishy fishy fishy fishy!
Loved this loving family.
This one reminded me of Michelangelo’s Slaves sculptures that line the hallway to the rotunda that houses the David at the Accademia in Florence. Only this one is crumbling internally, not struggling to break free.
I believe this one was one of the winners.
My mom grew up just off this beach, and most of my family comes from the surrounding area. As a result, I spent a lot of time here when I was little. Revere Beach is an urban beach and, along with Revere itself, gets a bad rap, but I think it’s a great beach nonetheless. Take the blue line out, grab a greasy slice of pizza at Bianchi’s, and spend your day lazing in the glorious sunshine!
