In addition to iconic movie characters and scene sculpted in the Sugar Sand Walk Exhibit, the festival will have a professional sand sculpting competition, sand sculpting clinics, speed sand demonstrations, fireworks, sand box play area, and on Sunday, April 13th a Beach Egg Hunt.

New to the festival this year will be The Frenchy’s Sand Bar, where beer and wine will be available for sale daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

During the 10 festival nights, the Sunset Cinema will play classic movies that everyone loves, such as Back to the Future, Jaws, and Harry Potter.

The festival is held just south of Clearwater Beach's Pier 60.
