REVERE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – After being cancelled last year because of Covid, the Revere Beach and Sand Sculpting Festival began Friday morning in less than ideal conditions.
Tarps were protecting the sculptures from the wind and rain as sculptors, including Meredith Corson-Doubleday, braced the elements for the sake of art.
“I’m ready to get out there,” she said, “We work rain or shine. We just don’t work in the lightening.”
Corson-Doubleday’s sculpting partner, Deb Barrett-Cutulle said she did not mind a little rain either.
She said it’s helpful to have the sand a little wet because “we have to wet it constantly to keep it workable.”
