It was sand, sun and success for sculptors at Revere Beach last weekend.
More than a dozen competitors from around the world took part in the 10th annual Revere Beach National Sand Sculpting Festival Friday and Saturday.
This year's theme was "Boston Strong," but first place went to Jonathan Bouchard of Montreal for his "Let Me Spread Ink" creation. He won $5,000 for his work.
Bouchard had previously won a record-breaking three consecutive times.
