On July 21st Malmedy is celebrating

In Malmedy, on July 21 it is quite simply “la Vraie Fête” – the festival of festivals. The Belgian National Festival is celebrated with pomp and circumstance. Each year, this great popular day draws a very large crowd (25,000 visitors in 2006).

At six o’clock in the morning, in the Pont-Neuf quarter of the town, the largest flea market in the region starts. On the Place de Rome there is an arts-and-crafts market that has an air of being in Provence.

The center of the town is filled to bursting point and it’s all about non-stop celebrations. A whole number of performers – musical and theatrical – of all kinds, charm both the young and old alike. At the end of the day, the evening is rounded off with an open-air dance and a large fireworks display, bringing this fantastic day to a close.
