Don't Miss The Hampton Beach Sand Sculpting Competition

The 10th Annual Master Sand Sculpting Competition at Hampton Beach has begun and is already drawing crowds to the area.  The fun began June 18th when ten tons of sand per sculptor was delivered.  June 19 - June 23 a massive sponsor site is created, where each sponsor's name appears on a piece of sand art.

June 24, 25, & 26 is the master solo competition. 

Each of the fourteen world class master sculptors will use sand, water, and their own creativity to build amazing works of art within their 18' x 18' plot. 

No molds of any kind may be used.

A solution of glue and water is sprayed on the completed entries to protect them from wind and rain, and help them remain in tact for the length of the competition.

 

 

 

The awards ceremony is Saturday, June 26 at 8 pm, on the Sea Shell Stage.  Fireworks will follow at 9:30.

The "exhibit on the beach" will remain until June 30.  It is lighted for night viewing.  You can view the live beach camera anytime to follow their progress.

UPDATE:  See photos of the Winners HERE

Kathy:  I am lucky to live near the beach.  I really love the coast!

Gary:  They are usually really amazing works of art.  I am always surprised at the detail!

Looking forward to the other photos you take, Sharon. Perhaps one of the contestants will want you to stage their entry...

Hi, Sharon. I'm always awed by people's creativity. It's amazing that the sculptures can be preserved...it would be horrible to have your masterpiece demolished by a downpour! HAVE FUN!

Leslie:  I'm pretty awed myself.  I'm looking forward to seeing the entries this year.

Posted by Sharon Tara, New Hampshire Home Stager (Sharon Tara Transformations) over 4 years ago

These are sooo amazing.  I love looking at these.

Posted by Debbie Walsh, Hudson Valley NY Real Estate 845.928.8000 (Keller Williams Realty) over 4 years ago

Now that would be something amazing to see!  I've never seen anything like it, looks like the personification of summertime - sand sculptures on the beach with the warm beach breeze floating through the air....

Posted by Janna Scharf, Coeur d'Alene Real Estate Pro (Keller Williams Realty Coeur d'Alene) over 4 years ago

Debra:  And these are just the ones being made for the Sponsors Section...each one has a sponsor's name on it.  The actual contest entries hadn't been started yet.  I hope to get there tomorrow or Tuesday to get photos of the final entries.

Janna:  And the wonderful smell of boardwalk treats...fries, clams, pizza!  It's a fun place for a walk, some junk food, and great views.

Vroom, Vroom sounds like fun Sharon, a cycle ride to the beach, sigh...

Sharon, while I've never experienced sand sculpting first hand (trust me, my sand castles as a kid were NOT noteworthy), I've not been to a competition.  Waiting for the web cam to load now.  How neat is that for those of us who cannot attend?

Posted by Mary Kay Hopkins, e-PRO,GRI,CRS (Mary Kay Hopkins, LLC e-PRO, GRI, CRS, CRB) over 4 years ago

Cynthia:  Didn't make it this weekend, but hope to get there tomorrow or Tuesday.  And, yes...would love to ride there.

Posted by Sharon Tara, New Hampshire Home Stager (Sharon Tara Transformations) over 4 years ago

Mary:  I'll try to get some good photos to share.  I checked out the web cam and it is pretty cool.  Hope you enjoy it.
