The Belgian Street Party

I've finally got round to making a slide show of a photo story I shot in August 2010 in Belgium.

Every year a group of Belgian people from a closely knit neighbourhood, and their friends, get together to have a street party.

The street is closed off and a marquee erected.

The neighbourhood raise funds and celebrate together eating Belgium's favourite meal, mussels with fries, and of course the best beer in the world. As you will see above everyone lets their hair down.

I was invited to the feast and had the opportunity to document it. The event's ceremony master welcomed my wife and I to the event, "all the way from England".

If you'd like to see the still images they're on my website in the photo story section. There are a few of my other photo stories there too.

Till soon,
