    The LOVE sand sculpture is complete and on display.Ā  Go check it out this weekend at Virginia Beachā€™s Neptune Festival.Ā  Ā Wonder how it was built?Ā  Check out this video ā€“ 24 hours of sandcastle building compressed into two minutes!

    Virginia is for Lovers is about love – pure and simple. For those who have traveled Virginia seeking LOVE artworks for photo opportunities, here’s a new artwork and perhaps our most unique yet.

    Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend

    Sandsculpture at a previous Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend.

    OnĀ Monday, September 24, master sand sculptors will bring LOVE to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront in the form of a giant wave crashing and leaving the word LOVE behind. See the LOVE sand sculptureĀ in progress from the Virginia Beach Boardwalk between 7th and 8th StreetsĀ and in its completed formĀ for the duration of the NeptuneĀ Festival Boardwalk WeekendĀ  (September 28-30) through October 7.

    Beginning September 28, visitors can getĀ closeĀ to the 5′ x 14′Ā sculpture with a $3 admission ticketĀ to Neptune’sĀ Kingdom of Sand (children 12 and under are free). Pose for a photo and then share it to Twitter or InstagramĀ using the hashtag #LOVEVA, or post it on the Virginia is for Lovers Facebook page.

    The highlight of the Neptune Festival Boardwalk WeekendĀ is the signature, world-renowned North American Sandsculpting Championship, where more than 275 artisans showcase their talents along 35 blocks of the Boardwalk. It’s the largest event of its kind. Additionally, visitors will enjoy a variety of live music, a Grand Parade, Saturday night fireworks display over the Atlantic, volleyball tournament, surfing classic, Atlantic Sailing Regatta, and 8K and 5K runs. The entire weekend is a memorable family fun experience, one that truly puts LOVE at the heart of aĀ Virginia vacation.

    The Neptune Festival LOVE artwork is part of a statewide effort which began with the Virginia is for Lovers oversized LOVE artwork.Ā The artwork has made stops at Virginia Welcome Centers, attractions and localities throughout Virginia.Ā  It has become a favorite photo opportunity for visitors as well as local residents wherever it has gone. Photos taken byĀ visitors from across the country can be seen at Virginia.org/LOVE.

    LOVE is at the heart of every Virginia vacation. Virginia is for Lovers.
