The World's Largest TITANIC Museum Attraction in Branson recently announced an extensive line-up of NEW interactive events happening now through spring 2008 which are designed to entertain, enlighten and encourage hands on participation for guests of all ages.
World's First Titanic Sand Sculpture
Beginning Thursday, September 20 through Sunday, September 23, guests are invited to watch award-winning sculptors shape a Titanic masterpiece from a 15-ton, mountain of imported sand. Upon completion, the sculpture will measure more than 20 feet from stem to stern and will tower more than 8 feet above TITANIC'S beach area. Professional sculptors will be on hand to give children – and any adult with an urge to be a kid again – tips on building sand castles of their own. This four-day event is another free, TITANIC Museum Attraction family experience. To view photos of similar, previous events, visit www.titanicbranson.com/media.
