Pelican, Fireworks & Plants

It was Harelbeke Feest last weekend.

Heavy rains and chilling temperatures kept D and I away from Friday’s pre-braderie at the city park.

But on Saturday evening after dinner, D and I cycled off to attend a bother-line crazy music performance at Rat Rock. We then walked to the city centre and watched the fireworks from the bridge. Because of the weather, there were much less people this year. But it was fun nevertheless.

Sunday, D and I visited two places for Dag Van De Landbouw. Plants and farming are way more interesting than a city festival. 😉

When we reached home, D and I decided that we still have time to attend some late afternoon activities at the city festival. So, we hopped on our bicycles and were in the city in a few minutes. We met and chatted with people we know, bought some mattentaarten, and supported the fire brigade by buying a burger and beer from their food stand. We cycled home before sunset, and I prepared a stir fry chicken noodle dinner for D.

Mid-September events are on a roll again…
