Sugar Sand Festival Taps Into Clearwater Beach’s Hollywood Acclaim

St. Pete/Clearwater, FL (April 4, 2014) - Just months before the area's own Dolphin Tale 2 hits the big screen, Clearwater Beach is celebrating its second annual Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival with a Hollywood twist. The 10-day event kicks off today.

More than a 1,000 tons of sand has been whipped into a variety of Hollywood-themed creations, like Ron Burgundy from Anchorman and a tribute to the classic Star Wars, inside of a 15,000 square-foot tent (3,000-square feet larger than last year). It all creates an artistic walk-through display.
