Clearwater Beach Sugar Sand Festival Brings Sweet Food, Drink and Resort Deals

By: Dalia Colon


Three words that always make for a good time: Sugar. Sand. Festival.

Put them together, and you get the Sugar Sand Festival. Have you ever...?

Of course you haven’t, because this year is the inaugural Frenchy’s Sugar Sand Festival on Clearwater Beach. From April 18 to 28, enjoy 10 days of beachin’ fun: sand-sculpting contests and clinics, children’s activities and much more.

Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa is sponsoring the event, so its restaurants are offering deals on just about everything under the sun:

  • At Skimmers Bar and Swim Bar, enjoy the $3 Gulf Coast Orange Crush - the resort’s signature drink.

  • Also at both bars, take advantage of sunset happy hour specials, including two-for-one classic margaritas, sangria and draft beer.
  • At SHOR and Skimmer’s lounge, get 20 percent off lunch and dinner orders when you present a receipt or wristband from the festival. There are also buy-one-get-one-free kids’ meals, and save room for Sugar Sand Doughnut Bites.

Need a place to rest your head after all that eatin’ and sun-worshippin’? The resort is offering 20 percent off nightly room rates during the festival. Book your stay at or 800-233-1234. The promo code, of course, is SUGAR.
