Blankenberge sand sculpture
THE WORLD COLLECTION
No summer without sand sculptures! And this year there is so much more to enjoy: posing next to Lady Gaga, footballing with David Beckham, sharing a frame with the Mona Lisa, giving a speech with Albert Einstein, stepping on board the Titanic, cuddling up to Brad Pitt in bed, cycling against Tom Boonen, playing tennis with Kim Clijsters, dining with Al Capone – to name but a few!
Get ready for an exciting journey through the fantastic sculptures of our Sand Wonderland: meet great scientists and inventors, discover the most dramatic events from our history, stand face to face with the most famous people of all time and rub shoulders with the most legendary sporting figures and pop stars of the 21st century.
The festival is built by 40 or so professional sand artists from all around the world. No fewer than 20,000 tons of sand will be sculpted on an area covering some 4,000 m², good for a visit of at least one and a half hours. The festival in Blankenberge is officially the largest sand sculpture festival in the world (Guinness Book of Records 2010).
The Sand Sculpture Festival takes place in the ’Duinse Polders’ in Blankenberge from Saturday 15 June 2013 until Sunday 15 September 2013, and is open continuously from 10.00 to 19.00.
Within easy walking distance of the beach and the pier, Sand Wonderland bids you a warm welcome all summer long. Step back into the days of your childhood dreams!
