The 28th annual festival - which this year has the theme 'Jurassic Beach' - will take place on Duncannon beach in Co Wexford.

Professional sculptors have been working since August 11 to perfect their dinosaur-themed masterpieces. A giant family beach party will mark the opening, with a firework display ending the night's festivities.

Organisers said the sand sculptures would "certainly spark the imagination." Several fun events have also been planned for the weekend, including live music on August 16.
