On Saturday was the annual Brussels Baloon Parade and of course I had to see that. The participants gathered at the Gare du Midi (the South Station of Brussels) a little Smurf is already expecting us. Not very far from the station is the publisher of the smurfs and its creator worked there. Another cartoon figure Brussels "Gendarme" (a policeman) watches over the people Music and fun a military orchestra and the Parade goes along the Boulevard Brussels symbols, the Atomium and Manneken Pis (little man piss) The police has nothing to do and chats People were sitting on the steps of "La Bourse" which is the stock market of Brussels. Manneken Piss arrives and for the first time this year people could sit on the terraces of the cafés. Of the baloons I made this little slide show.
