The famed Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival, a 10-day celebration of Clearwater’s award-winning beaches, is back for its 4th year. The festival will celebrate with a theme of “All Out Music!” and once again provide ample reason to extend spring vacation season for the whole family. The event will take place on Clearwater Beach from April 15–24, 2016 and is sponsored by Sunsets at Pier 60, Clearwater’s daily celebration of picture perfect sunsets for the past 20 years.
The festival will feature 1,000 tons of Clearwater Beach’s world famous sugar white sand creatively carved to feature a musical journey through the decades in the Sugar Sand Walk Exhibit. Team Sandtastic will once again craft the artistic walk-through display in a 21,000-square-foot tent. In addition, the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival will offer a variety of featured activities on Clearwater Beach for all 10 sand-filled days including the CCM Graphics Master Sand Sculpting Competition, Sand Sculpting Classes, Clearwater Gas System Speed Sand Demonstrations, Bright House Blast Fireworks, and the very popular Camp Hyatt Sand Box children’s play area. The Festival will also feature the Centennial Fireworks and the Sugar Sand Finale fireworks. Last year’s festival drew 30,000 visitors to the exhibit. More than 100,000 participants took advantage of many of the free activities during the ten-day festival.
