The 14th edition of the International Sand Scultping Festival at Revere Beach kicked off at 10 a.m. on Friday. Sculptors from across the globe have convened on the beach to build their granular masterpieces, which will be free to view for visitors until the festival ends at 8 p.m. Sunday night.

According to the Revere Beach Partnership, this year’s festival is themed around the Tall Ships that sailed through Boston in June. Fittingly, this year’s centerpiece sculpture is a 20-foot sand replica of the USS Constitution, which will reenter the water Sunday night after two-plus years of renovations.


Along with the impressive sculptures, visitors can enjoy live music, food trucks, and a fireworks display on Saturday night.
