This popular annual Virginia Beach event hosts the most unique sand sculpture contest in the area. Watch the talented artists bring the sand to life as part of the Neptune Festival. These artists are competing for the largest prize purse that is awarded in the country, so you know they are going to bring their A game!

There will be 22 beautiful masterpieces for you to view that are all housed in a tent that is as large as a football field. The purpose of the sculptures being housed in a tent is to protect them from wind, rain, or other possible weather damages.
