It’s Carnival time!

1/3/14 - Sunday is the highlight of carnival celebrations in Flanders with the big carnival pageant in Aalst, the capital of Flemish carnival. Our colleagues at Fans of Flanders delved into the history of carnival in our regions and travelled to Aalst to meet some of those involved in this year’s celebrations. They also learnt about the pagan origins of this feast that gives ordinary people a chance to get back at our politicians.
