These Easter school holidays, families are invited to the enchanting 'Disney's Princesses and Pirates' exhibition, proudly presented by Sand Sculpting Australia and the City of Onkaparinga.

This exciting new exhibition will take place on Port Noarlunga foreshore and will see some of Disney's most beloved Princesses and Pirates meticulously carved into stunning larger than life sand sculptures.

From Saturday 4th of April until Sunday 19th April 2015, all the timeless Disney favourites will be on show in an impressive display, from Frozen's Queen Elsa and Princess Anna to the beautiful Cinderella and kind Belle from Beauty and The Beast. Joining the Princesses will be Captain Hook, and his scallywag band of pirates!

This fairytale wonderland will be created by 10 of Australia's best sculptors and over 150 tonnes of sand!

Complementing the unique exhibition will be a range of interactive activities for children, including Sand Sculpting Workshops, Sand Art, Sand Bottles, Sand Diggers, children's activity sheet, Lego play zone and the popular Disney colouring zone (please note Sand Art, Sand Bottles & Sand Diggers are paid activities

Plus the popular Sandsational Easter Egg hunt will be held over the Easter long-weekend (4 - 6 April). Over the three days, sand carved eggs will be hidden around the sculptures and children who find them all will be rewarded with a bag of Ernest Hillier chocolate eggs! The Sandsational Easter Egg hunt is included with entry from April 4 to 6 only.

    Not as expected not much to do during the week and as for the $8 entry fee it should have been free, the weekend might be a different kettle of fish👎
