2019 Hampton Beach Sand Sculpting Competition

Last Saturday, was the finale of the 2019 Hampton Beach Sand Sculpting Competition. They leave the sculptures up for a couple of weeks, weather permitting. It’s fun to go the day the competition ends for voting and such, but it’s so busy. So many people go to the event. So, we went a few days later. The crowds and prices to park were much better. These were some of my favorites. The artists come from various parts of the US and Canada.

      Thank you. As I said in my post, we specifically went today to avoid the crowds. It was cool and cloudy at the beach, so we accomplished our mission.

      I agree. There was an interview with the artist and in short it’s all about breaking out and being who we are meant to be. I didn’t look at results of the competition until we’d seen most of the pieces. I wan’t surprised that this won. I would imagine New Jersey has its share of such competitions.

    Amazing that the sand sculptures can stand majestically like so! I wonder if there are scaffolds to hold these art forms together or is it purely sand compressed to become sand sculpture?
