Ilot sacré (sacred little island) is the area around the Grand'Place in Brussels' center.
Each year there is a festival in the Ilot sacré and as the weather was so beautiful I thought I too should have a look on the festivities !
Of course there were a lot of people who had the same idea !
There were food stands and beer stands so it was impossible even for tourists to starve.
This gentleman was walking around with a Manneken Pis (Brussels symbol) and sprayed on people.
He was very proud of his moustache !
People walking around or having a glass of beer
some plants or flowers to buy
and snails to eat
This young woman showed how to make "crêpes" (very thin pancakes). When she turned the pancake she throw it in the air and it landed in the pan again.
all kind of food
and different bands
The garbadge cleaner just walked behind these elegant citizens in their middle age costumes. That really looked so funny !
A band came from Malmedy, the German speaking part of Belgium
and the Belgian beer flow in torrents ! This man is for saving our planet : Save Water Drink Beer !
