Sand Sculptures - Portugal 2009

Here are the rest of the photos of the sand statues in Portugal. They were amazing to walk around.  Thankfully there was no rain!!  The festival was called Fiesa, but is also known as the Internation Sand Sculpture Festival.  It is the largest sand sculpture event in the world and has been held in the Algarve in Portugal since 2003.  The site occupies 15,000 square metres (3.7 acres). Each year about 60 artists use 35000 tons of sand to create 50 works of art.Each year has a different theme.  In 2009, when I went, the theme was discoveries.
