The festival includes a variety of hands-on activities, bouncy castles, information displays, arts and crafts stations, a Youth Craft Market, Hand Drum Rhythms, a SKAM theatre production and food vendors. Three local bands, Freeze Frame, Pulse Radio and Soul Shakers, will perform throughout the afternoon.

A major highlight of the annual festival is watching world-class sand sculptors create six giant works out of just sand and water.
