From Friday December 26 this year, until Monday January 26 in 2015, 400 tonnes of sand will take the shape of beloved characters from popular children's movies at Bella Vista Farm Park for The Sydney Hills International Sand Sculpting Exhibition. This year's event is themed 'A Friend in Me' and celebrates Disney.Pixar.

All the characters should be pretty well-known and since the theme is all about friendship, it will be the key players in the films that will be depicted. Movies to be given the sand sculpture treatment include Toy Story 3, Cars, A Bugs Life, Wall-E, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc, The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Brave.

Along with the sand sculptures there will be activities for children like sand sculpting workshops, sand art and sand bottles, a giant sandpit, activity sheets and a Lego play zone. Sometimes you might even be lucky enough to see roving entertainment, or get some free face painting. Food and drink will be available within the event every day.
