Be inspired by sand sculptures from a galaxy far, far away as this year’s Sentosa Sandsation will see iconic Star Wars characters take over South-east Asia’s largest sand sculpture festival.
The inaugural Sentosa Sandsation: Star Wars Edition kick-starts a three-year collaboration between Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) and The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia.
The sand fest, which spans almost 3,000m2, will run from 31 August to 15 September 2019, between 10.00 and 20.30 daily. Entry into the event is free for all.
All Singapore residents will also enjoy free entry into Sentosa from August 31 to September 15, 2019, via the Sentosa Express or when driving through the Sentosa Gateway vehicular gantry in Singapore-registered cars.
Sentosa Sandsation: Star Wars Edition will feature 20 Star Wars-themed sand sculptures by renowned sand artists, including Singapore’s very own JOOheng Tan, sand sculpting workshops and “live” demonstrations, as well as the Sentosa International Sand Sculpting Competition. There will also be free movie screenings and exclusive Star Wars-themed merchandise for sale on-site.
As part of the collaboration between SDC and The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia, guests can look forward to unique and creative experiences at Sentosa which are inspired by Disney’s beloved characters and stories over the next three years.
Sentosa FUN Shops and Singapore Cable Car Gift Shops, operated by One Faber Group (1FG), will also offer merchandises exclusively produced by Disney and 1FG from August 31, in conjunction with this collaboration.
Lynette Ang, chief marketing officer, SDC, said: “The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia is no stranger to us at Sentosa, having collaborated (with us) on past projects such as Sentosa Sandsation: Marvel Edition in 2018. Our three-year collaboration with Disney builds on this synergy to bring even more unique and fun leisure experiences to our guests.”
