April 27th, Boxtel. Every King's Day the giant "Jas de Keistamper" and his girlfriend the giantess "Hanne mi de moor" appear at the market place in Boxtel. Jas is more than 11 feet tall. There is no other giant in The Netherlands whose heavy body and head are carried by a strong man. In 1393, Boxtel was the only place in Noord-Brabant to have a paved road. This was part of the connection between 's-Hertogenbosch, Boxtel, Eindhoven and Liege. All the boulders had to be tamped with a boulder rammer and this required giant force. As a result of this legend, in 1949 during the reconstruction, the giant Jas de Keistamper was born. He is the personification of the cobblestone profession and symbolizes the perseverance of Boxtelaren and Boxtel's drive.
