People in Belgium painted the town blue this weekend
Belgium (NBC NEWS) — People in Belgium celebrated the second-annual Global Smurf Day.
The event took place in more than 50 cities around the world to celebrate the birthday of the creator of the little blue creatures.
In the creator's hometown, more than 40 Smurf ambassadors met at the site of a giant Smurf statue.
Dressed in full costume and excited to represent their country, the ambassadors posed for pictures and met with mascots promoting the new Smurf movie.
They then took the party to the train station where the ambassadors were given a final farewell and took off to Paris, where the movie takes place.
