It’s been a long week spent at Revere Beach for RevereTV! The International Sand Sculpting Festival was back this summer and went off without a hitch. This event is most closely followed and covered by RevereTV every year. The studio provided daily updates of the preparation and competition on social media, which were strung together to create a total video update playing on television. Throughout the next few weeks, coverage from this year’s festival will be playing on the Community Channel. You can view all sand sculpting footage from RevereTV on YouTube at any time, including all videos from past competitions. Congratulations to this year’s winners and all who participated in this post-pandemic comeback. RevereTV hopes everyone found this weekend as festive and enjoyable as the studio staff does.
