Sand Castles on Carson Beach
Be prepared to be dazzled. On July 15-16, five master sand sculptors will be creating giant sand castles at DCR’s Carson Beach near the McCormack Bath House and at DCR’s Wollaston Beach near the yacht club in Quincy as part of Save the Harbor/Save the Bay’s Better Beaches Program before competing in the Revere Beach International Sand Sculpting Festival.
Marielle Heessels from the Netherlands and Leonardo Ugilini from Italy will be creating a 15-ton Sand Castle on Carson Beach. That’s a lot of sand!
“As a member of the Metropolitan Beaches Commission, I’m happy that such great programs are available for the public,” said Rep. Nick Collins. “I’m looking forward to seeing what Marielle and Leonardo will put together and hope that people will come by Carson Beach to see their great work and enjoy our local beaches.”
