The Giants of Sandwich

Friday, December 22nd, 2017 @ 4:29PM

For your viewing pleasure, Representative Randy Hunt and his wife, Mary, produced a map (below) pinpointing the location of all 66 Sandwich Giants and one particularly well-appointed home referred to as “The Griswold Bonus Stop.” The map includes a suggested route; the legend is in a sequence that will take viewers to see nearly all of the Giants in about 45 minutes to an hour. It’s ready just in time for the big holiday weekend, in case you are in need of an activity for the whole family or are desperate to get away from your egg nog-fueled in-laws. (Tap or click the full-page icon at the top right corner of the map to view it on its own page.)



The Sandwich Giants are a collection of illuminated, wrought-iron sculptures produced by one of Sandwich’s renowned glassblowers, Michael Magyar. Michael has been making Giants for over a decade; each Giant is unique and, well, giant in size. Popular figures include The Weather Shop’s “Old Man Winter” (number 4 on the map), the Spotted Cod’s eponymous Giant (number 32), the Sandwich Fire Department’s “Fireman with Hose” and “Firetruck” (numbers 25 and 39, respectively), and First Church Sandwich’s “Rainbow Dove” (number 28). The “Tax Man” (number 34) sits just outside Rep. Hunt’s CPA practice on Quaker Meeting House Road.

While a few Giants live outside of Sandwich, the vast majority are in town. All are privately owned and will be illuminated into early January.

Wonderful !! We drive the giants twice every Christmas. My kids and grandkids love it, and so do my wife and I. Plus we catch a meal in Sandwich each time.

Thank u so much for making an updated map! The last one I could find had less than 40 giants. This map you guys have created is awesome, and allows for a route to be set to minimize driving around aimlessly and distracted. Thanks for making this a fun and safe family activity!

Thank you! Some of the giants are created by the homeowners, like the sea dragon on Tupper Road, which my husband Bix Hamby made. We love Michael Magyar’s exuberant light sculptures, and we hope he makes many more! Again, thank you so much for the map.
