CLEARWATER, Fla. – Take a trip around the world in 17 days. Do that and more when you make a visit to the 2019 Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival presented by Visit St. Pete/Clearwater on Clearwater Beach April 12-28. Celebrating some of the greatest landmarks across different countries, the theme for this year’s festival will be ‘Sea the World, A Journey Around the Globe.” Clearwater Beach’s famous sugar sand will be transformed into immaculate sculptures of renowned destinations and prominent landmarks from around the world.
Tickets for the 2019 Sugar Sand Walk Exhibit and Baystar VIP Lounge are available online now at SugarSandFestival.com. Purchasing tickets online allows you to skip the line when visiting the exhibit. General admission to the sculpture exhibit will be $10 for adults, $8 for children 4-10 years old and free for children under 3 years of age. Tickets will also be $8 for those 60 and older, military personnel, police officers, firefighters and teachers. These discounted tickets will only be available at the gate with proper identification.
Due to the overwhelming success and popularity of the Sugar Sand Festival, the event will now stretch across 17 days instead of 10. This will give people more time to visit and also allow those visiting for the Easter holiday a chance to see this unique and affordable event.
