Summer in Va Beach is officially over after this weekend, but not before one last “party”. The grand finale is “Boardwalk Weekend,” The 33rd Annual Neptune Festival. For three days and nights, a host of activities such as the internationally renowned North American Sandsculpting Competition, draw visitors and guests from across the Commonwealth and beyond to the Virginia Beach Boardwalk. Daily concerts alfresco in tented festival stages are scattered along 32 blocks of the boardwalk and feature a variety of live music. Over 275 artisans will line the boardwalk for the Neptune Art and Craft Show interspersed with a veritable smorgasbord of food vendors dishing out delectable delights guaranteed to please any palette.
Tim and I went this year and brought our camera, everything below is built of sand, the first one set the new world record as the tallest sand castle, standing at 37.9 feet tall. Several of these pictures (the first 9) are just a small part of this one design. The other ones are seperate designs done by teams from all over the world. They were amazing, I hope you enjoy!
