- Folklore and Tradition
This Carnival of the Marquise is often the last Carnival of the season in Belgium. A beautiful folklore finale to discover in Habay-la-Neuve.
Carnival festivities revolve around the famous Marquise du Pont d'Oye, Louise de Lambertye, the last Marquise of Habay. She is accompanied, not by her Prince Carnival, but by her or his Marquis.
