Het eerste weekend in juni komen lange mensen uit de hele wereld bij elkaar in Parc St Paul. De eerste dag gaan ze met iedereen op de foto. En daar kan geen Louvre of Eiffeltoren tegenop. Dat bleek wel tijdens een eerder bezoek.  Op de foto staan Abdramane Dembele (2,35 m) en Rob Bruintjes (2,21 m) naast elkaar en worden “belaagd” door scholieren uit Nederland die net van een boot afkwamen.

Bijgaand een deel van de informatie op de site van dit evenement.
