Sandsculpting Sucess Story

In just nine years the Sandcastle Festival has become one of the best attended, talked about and written about summer venues on this part of the Northeast coast. From a very humble, quiet, somewhat stumbling and fumbling beginning, the festival has grown into a massive event of the first order and as such, all future efforts must be well orchestrated, funded and carried out. Last weekend’s festival attendance was over the top, especially the crowd that came out all day Saturday and culminating with the enormous crowd that filled every portion of Revere Beach for the fireworks display.

Today is where you have to move all of the sand, put it into the form, put water with it, pack it all down.  So you end up shoveling like 20 tons of sand, there is like 10 tons there but you have to move it and then you have to put it back. So this is the grueling part,” explains Martelli. Martelli says oftentimes when he …
