Here are some of the Sculptures created at the North American Sand Sculpting Championship 2017. The event takes place at the Virginia Beach Neptune Festival.
"Both professionals and amateurs come to the Neptune Festival to compete in the sand sculpting competition. They start by using water to hold the sand together. Buckets, shovels, sprayers, wheelbarrows, ladders, and garden tools help make the sand sculptures. Cake cutters, pallet knives, spoons, and even melon-ballers are also used. Natural seashore items such as shells and seaweed are used for decorations."
My husband, Ron, took the photos.
