Last weekend was filled with music and folklore in Antwerp with the liberation festivities, Klassiek in’t stad  and the march of the Giants in Deurne.

Around 300 giant dolls walked in the streets of Deurne and immediately made me remember the atmosphere of fairs when I was a child. The folklore feel of it all, brass bands and majorettes, streets thick with people and children watching in awe while the huge dolls pass by, parents and grand parents having a drink and playing billiards in the local café’s.
