"Jeneverfeesten" in Hasselt: jenever rules this weekend!

The city of Hasselt (Limburg) is staging its annual Jeneverfeesten. In a special ceremony, the 29th edition of the jenever festival was opened by the man with the bell. Then, there should be silence for the moment when Mayor Nadja Vananroye had a first sip. After she approved the taste, the party could start. 

The festival runs the whole weekend and boasts various other activities. Jenever should not be confused with gin, though there is a strong link between the two. Jenever is made using corn, and various tastes are added, like fruit tastes (cherry jenever, apple jenever) or others.
