"Summer fair and Procession of Plaisance" Geraardsbergen Local Custom Tip by ATLC
Geraardsbergen Local Customs: 4 reviews and 6 photos
This event takes place on the first Sunday after August 24th which is St. Bartholomews day.
(Sunday 28 August 2011 is the next one).
The link below provides only information in Dutch, unfortunately. But do go and look at the pictures there.
Since the year 1515 ertain relics are moved from one church to another on this day, accompanied by 3 giants of 2.5 to 4.5 metres high. All the local clubs make up the procession, each dressed appropriately. It must be a very colourful and musical event!
