MY WORLD - Farmer's feast


more participants here

Each year in September a farmer's feast is organized in the city park of Waterloo. As the weather was nice I made a little walk through the stands.



There were quite a lot of people and a band played all kind of music



There was garden furniture and decorations to see



and lots of other stands selling different products, like here the wool stand with some clothes.



Publicity for a "green" life and propositions how to become more and more "green"



After having seen these cute pigs, I had no appetite for a sausage anymore !



there were some other animals too even a llama which is quite exotic for Belgium



The police showed what their dogs are able to do (see post below)


and a little video of the show






For children there were lot of things to play with



Solar pannels proposed for heating and people walked through this beautiful parc



some strange decorations for your garden



and a man who showed us how he makes clogs. They are mostly worn in the Netherlands, but also in parts of Belgium.

We visit two times a year the 'garden days' at Beervelde, always fun. This looks great in Waterloo and a fine collection of pictures you took.

Looks like a fun day! I love all the animals and the garden decorations and the police dog show is neat.

My German grandfather told us that he hated his shoes when he was a boy in Germany because they were made from wood and as they aged they split and pinched his feet. Once he came to the USA in the early 1900's he worked hard and enjoyed fine leather shoes.

A real mini agricultural show. I'm sure Waterloo looked stunning too.

We watched clogs being made in the Netherlands earlier this year. What took hours to make by hand could be made in minutes by machine. They were later decorated so beautifully.

That looks like it was a fun little festival! I would NOT have eaten sausage after visiting the pigs either! I would have eaten MY sausage before visiting the pigs! LOL! I thought you were a vegetarian... am I wrong? Maybe it's Ilona...
