When coming to Tournai in Belgium in 2006 there was a carneval going on. We were surprised but just went with the flow. Here are a few photos we snapped along the way.
Unlike German parades for carneval the groups, marching bands and vehicles did not all go one after the other, but everybody cruised down town this small city on looping routes, crossing pathes with others and entertaining town. This went on for hours.
Bands placed themselves in squares, played for a bit, marched on, played somewhere else...
And the whole town seemed to be full of very individual people.
