In an attempt to feel less homesick,
a gentleman from Brussels put up a statue of our Manneken,
near here in the garden of his Koksijde property.
That was more than a hundred years ago.
On 21 June 2008, in the presence of a delegation of the Order of the Friends of Manneken Pis,
the Lord Mayor of Koksijde Mr. Marc Vanden Bussche unveiled a new statue.
Also in our picture from left to right aldermen
Dirk Dawyndt, Frederic Devos and Daniel Van Herck
and finally Mr. Fernand Van Oosten, member of the Order.
