Weston super Mare's sand sculpture festival will return this year despite fears that it might be too expensive.
Organisers have confirmed the festival will be back next month to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
Last year organisers said the festival might not return because it costs too much to set up.
There's a question mark over the future of one of Weston-super-Mare's biggest seaside events, the Sand Sculpture Festival.
Organiser Nicola Wood says they may not return next year because of the costs of setting up, and it will be heartbreaking to leave the town:
Weston-super-Mare's popular Sand Sculpture festival may not return to the seafront next year unless it gets sponsorship.
Organisers say it costs around £30,000 to set the event up. They are also looking to improve security and even to include an education centre on site.
The annual festival - which brings in sculptors from across the world - is a big attraction for the seaside town.
