The first of its kind Sand Sculptures Festival in Bulgaria was held for the first time in July 2008 in the city of Burgas. World-renowned artists from Indonesia, Belgium, Holland, Ireland, Russia, Ukraine and Bulgaria had taken part. Since then the festival begins somewhere between July to September until October, in an area of five hectares on the territory of Burgas Park "lake" in Seaside Park. The theme is different each year - Fairytales and movie characters, sea creatures, palaces and medieval towers are only a fraction of the sand molds that will delight young and old, some of them more than 8 meters high. For the bizarre pattern about 2,500 tons of a special sustainable to rain sand are used.
