The Giants of the Guilds

Dendermonde is the proud owner of three Giants. People of Dendermonde call them 'the three big men'. These Giants are not only famous for their beautiful looks, but also because of their graceful dancing. Believe it or not but each giant is carried by a porter. How amazing!
The porters of the Gildereuzen are united in a Guild of Giant Porters. After all, it has not been given to everyone to carry a piece of heritage on their shoulders.
It is a privilege passed on from father to son, and considered a great honour!
