This year’s festival, presented under the banner “Sand Tales” (Пясъчни приказки) is a retrospective celebrating the best of each previous exhibition, presenting the themes of prior years reimagined and freshly created with new vision, excitement, and emotion just for this anniversary event.
Twenty one sculptors from ten countries used over 5600 tons of sand to produce a fairy tale atmosphere on the beach including over 50 beloved characters in twenty compositions. Subjects include Bulgarian folk traditions, fictional characters, famous people, structures and nature scenes. A giant sized birthday cake looks good enough to eat!
