I am a primary school teacher that is very passionate about the arts and creativity. I enjoy writing about different events to show how people can make the most out of their life.
Event: -
Full of fun and excitement, The Sand Festival, Portugal

This is a great artistic exhibition, where sand artists come from all over the world come to share their talents of sand sculpture. This is the eleventh year this event will be running, and every year it has a theme that you have to guess. So it is up to you to find out what it might be.

This extraordinary event is also a great way to find out if your historical and geographical skills are up to par; as the sand sculptors carve everything from ancient gods to present idols from all over the world.

The sand exhibition also stays open all through the night and is lit up with beautiful lights to help make the sculptures stand out in all their glory.

Located in the Algarve in Portugal, this great event will be well sign posted but here are directions if they are needed:

Fiesa, in the Algarve, on E524, road between Pera and Algoz.

In 2011 I went to this remarkable exhibition and I really was amazed by the true beauty of these sculptures. The amount of work that must have gone into this event was outstanding. Everything was so perfectly carved and some of the sand sculptures were just so realistic, you could have mistaken it for the real thing. This event was very busy and so it should be. With so much talent and effort, this sand festival deserves a good turn out. I stayed there for hours on end just gazing at these brilliant works of art with oar and curiosity.

You could definitely spend the whole day here with your family as there is so much going on and so much to talk about. So what are you waiting for, get yourself down to the sand event of the year:

Between May 25 and June 29 from 10am until 9pm.
Between June 30 and September 15 from 10am until Midnight.
Between September 16 and October 25 from 10am until 8pm.
