MY WORLD - Brussels Baloon Parade


More participants here

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.

What a fun parade! I'm sure it is magical for children. (And grown-ups, too.) All the color and festivity is wonderful.

I'm jealous. I want such a Balloon parade too. We never have any parades over here - other from the Pride parade perhaps.
