We must be approaching summer – the Hampton Beach Sand Sculpture Competition is coming soon! Starting June 20th, competitors will fashion works of art from 300 tons of imported sand. Yes, they import sand to Hampton Beach! The competition, open to registered participants only, results in great sculptures that beautify the beach for several weeks. There will be several special events in conjunction with this event, including sand sculpting classes, fireworks (June 23rd), and voting for a people’s choice award winner. The creations will be on display through July 8th. For more details and for photos of the impressive works of past award winners, go to the Sand Sculpture website by clicking here.
