- Folklore and Tradition
Le Cwarmê is a fantastic carnival stretching over 4 days of festivities. This event, well ingrained in the Walloon tradition, is famous for its fascinating masks: no less than 15 different characters.
Saturday: the "Giant Police" open the festivities, followed by a folkloric procession
Sunday: dance of the Haguètes (the main characters of the carnival) and the Arlequins, followed by a large procession (with over 2,500 persons in costume and traditional mask).
Monday: named day of "Roles", satirical scenes played in the street followed by a procession
Mardi Gras: day of the Mâssis Tour, a procession gathering the many carnival guilds. A character named the Hag`guète will be burnt on the bonfire at the end of the day, thus closing the festivities.
The procession will take place on the Sunday at 2 pm and will leave from Place de Rome.
