largest sand sculpture park in the world
March 24, 2014 Saturday

73 of the world’s best sand artists came to State of Kuwait and joined together to re-invent the stories of 1,001 Arabian nights. This arabian-inspired concept of the Remal International Festival is opened from January 30 to April 26 of 2014 at the Kuwait International Fairgrounds.

Remal International Festival stretches 30,000 meters and uses 35,000 tons of sand. Some of the sculptures are among the largest ever built and are first to allow visitors to walk and enter around through them. There are 10-minute shows everyday starting from 1730H with an hour interval. Show program includes "Aladdin and Wonderful Lamp" where the story from 1,001 Arabian nights is told in combination of sand sculptures, sound and light effects. In addition, there are also Fire Dancers, python show and Fata Ole - demonstrating the finest in African folklore within a 3-minute dance performed 3 times daily.

How to go to Remal International Festival;

Remal International Festival Sand park is located in Kuwait International Fairground in Mishref (infront of Australian University in Kuwait). Opens daily from 1000H to 0000H with entrance fee of 3KWD per person.

Sand art is the practice of modelling sand into an artistic form, such as a sand brushing, sand sculpture, sandpainting, or sand bottles. Good sculpture sand is somewhat dirty, having silt and clay that helps lock the irregular-shaped sand grains together. The largest sand castle made in a contest was 18 feet tall; the owner, Ronald Malcnujio, a five-foot-high man, had to use several ladders, each the height of the sand castle. His sculpture consisted of one ton of sand and 10 litres of water to sculpt.
