Hundreds of redheads flew from across the world to Dutch city of Tilburg for the annual Redhead Days Festival, which took place over the weekend.
Gingers came from across the world, from countries including the UK, Israel, Italy, New Zealand and Germany, for the three-day long event that is supposed to be all about ‘connection, pride and recognition.’
While this year’s festival attracted huge crowds, it was nowhere near as big as its world record-setting event in 2013, which brought 1,672 natural redheads together in one spot.
