Wordless Wednesday (sand sculptures)



  I have lived in VA for over 10 years and have gone to the same handful of festivals each year.  This weekend I couldn't wait to go to my favorite event of the year. The Neptune Festival! This festival takes place in Virginia Beach and that's the perfect place for some sand sculpture making!

  There doesn't seem to be a theme or an obvious theme.  I however don't care because they are all such beautiful works of art. The variety of each one makes it better.








  This year I went at a different time then I usually do and uggg all those people were in my way.  Plus my phone was picking up the sun for all angles.

  My favorite this year accompanied the bear in the first picture.  Here's the front and back!



  

  What's your favorite annual festival that you refuse to miss out on?  Have you been to a sand sculpture contest?

    1. It's the only festival I look forward to all year. It's the last big festival of the year since the weather cools down.

    1. Maybe next year will be the year. The weather is usually nice so you could find lots to do after you see the sculptures.

  8. Oh my goodness, I didn't realize this was a festival; they all look so impressive! I can barely get a basic castle design! To answer your question, the Renaissance Festival was my no-miss festival each year until I had kids.
