The Revere Beach Partnership Kicks Off Another Season

By Revere Journal story by

The Revere Beach Partnership is known for several events, but most notably the International Sand Sculpting Festival, which draws more than 500,000 people to Revere Beach. Last week, the Partnership announced the upcoming calendar for activities at the beach at a breakfast meeting that was held at Comfort Inn.

The following Revere Beach Partnership events are scheduled for this year: Shamrock Splash, March 11; Revere Beach Kite Festival, May 20; International Sand Sculpting Festival, July 20-22; Revere Beach Arts Festival, Sept. 15 and the Fall Festival & Pumpkin Dash 5K, Oct. 14.

The mission of the Revere Beach Partnership is to carry forward the heritage of Revere Beach as a nearby retreat for New England families and to preserve the beach’s unique historic and natural assets.

Lauren Laidlaw, executive director of the partnership, said they are looking for a large sponsor this year and in years to come. As volunteers it is hard to raise money each year for the events.

“It would help take the burden off our organization which is stress,” Laidlaw said. “Stress to keep the level of programming and quality ongoing.”

She said every time there is a breach at other events they have to think about that here and implement new ideas.

“Large snowplow trucks are needed to protect our citizens, we have that level of responsibility,” Laidlaw said. “We can’t do that without public safety and all that takes cash and time.”

“We’d love to share the spotlight,” Laidlaw said, adding that the partnership is made of volunteers. “We want to preserve the heritage and know that the beach is a great place to bring your family.”
