Clearwater’s Pier 60 will honor musical icon Prince with a sand sculpture during this week’s Sugar Sand Festival.
Prince, 57, died Thursday at his home in Minneapolis.
“The city of Clearwater and the organizers of the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival are shocked and saddened by the passing of musical icon Prince,” Festival organizers said in a statement first reported in the Tampa Bay Reporter. “To honor this musical genius, starting today, sculptors at the Sugar Sand Festival will begin sculpting a memorial of Prince.”
According to the Sugar Sand Festival website a 21,000 square-foot tent will be filled with sand-sculpted art crafted by world-class sculptors using Clearwater’s “internationally famous sugar sand.”
“All Out Music.” Is the festival’s theme this year. The event runs through Sunday.
