Genappe carnival is a vibrant
burst of colour that’s sure to put a smile on your face. The event
first took place in 1990! The carnival procession includes around
30 local floats and bands. There is an egg hunt on the Saturday.
The procession takes place on the Sunday, with floats, Gilles
(clown-like figures in costume) and other folk groups, not
forgetting the finalrondeaucircle dance and evening dance! Monday is
devoted to children, and is also the day when the Gilles burn their
humps on a bonfire.
