Garderen Sand Sculpture Festival is "Explore Your Own Country". Dutch regions, buildings and famous attractions are exhibited as sand sculptures. These 2 photos picture some icons of the Efteling, a fantasy-themed amusement park in the town of Kaatsheuvel. The attractions are based on elements from ancient myths and legends, fairy tales, fables, and folklore. The park opened in 1952 and in 2016 it was the third most visited theme park in Europe. I have never been there by the way ;)
The figure on the left (with his mouth open) is gobbler Hollow Bulging Gijs ('Hollebolle Gijs' in Dutch) from a Dutch children's song, who could eat a lot but stayed hungry all the time.
