Le Grand Feu de Bouge

  • Folklore and Tradition
Sunday 10 March 2019

The great fires are a long-established tradition: Come burn the winter man and to welcome the arrival of spring, in Bouge, on February 18, 2018.

The first Sunday of Lent (or Sunday of Quadragesima) was also called Sunday of the "Brandons", the "Escuvillons" or the "Feûreû": It was the name given to the straw whose sticks were intended to strike the fruit trees to make them fertile.

Come and take part in the most important Belgian Fireworks! Discover an abundance of folklore and popular joy in a good-natured atmosphere. A firework display completes the ceremony.

An event to light up your life!
