An annual event held in Brussels is celebrating Belgian heritage within the community. The Belgian Days festival was hosted on July 15 by the Brussels Lion’s Club with sunny weather and a large crowd in attendance to partake in ethnic festivities. President of the Brussels Lion’s Club Kelly Tassoul says the festival has been a huge success in the community every year.
Tassoul also says the proceeds from this fundraiser go towards supporting school programs, loaning out medical equipment for people in need of it and park maintenance. Belgian Days was held in Brussel’s town park on July 14-15 with the gates opening at 7 a.m.
