Antalya’s Sand Sculpture Festival starts on May 1

The fifth International Antalya Sand Sculpture Festival will begin May 1 in the southern province.

A total of 10,000 tons of sand would be used for the sculptures, with nearly 25 artists from 11 countries taking part. Sculptures to be displayed include “Batman,” “Matrix,” “Star Wars,” “Titanic,” and “E.T.”

160,000 people visited the festival in 2010; more than 200,000 people are expected to visit the festival this year.

Organisers are also looking to organise the festival in Hurghada, Egypt, an important tourism center near the Red Sea.
