Sandsationally Nativity in Jesolo, Christmas ’09
Coming to Venice this Christmas? If you have some spare time make sure you drop by the 8th edition of Sand Nativity in nearby Jesolo, an interesting artistic representation of the nativity scenes and religious characters made entirely by sand, which I am certain will keep both children and adults entertain.
Surely, all of us had once played with the sand on the beach doing those abstract work of arts (was it meant to be a castle?) but this is seriously professional stuff, artists from all over the world that at knocks of shovel and Mary Poppins’-style bag full of carving tools will battle for the sandiest best sculpture.
The event was launched in 2002 and we can see how it has become one of the main attractions in Jesolo during the chilly holiday season. The event is free but any contribution is welcome and will go to support few charity’s projects.
It started already on the 6th of December but, don’t despair, you have time till the 31st of this month for this sandsational event. Just go in Piazza Marconi, Jesolo, every day 10am-12pm and 2pm-7pm expect for Saturdays and holiday when the lights will shut down at 10pm.
