Belgium warms up for the sumer with the carnival season.
To experience one of the most festive times of year, venture into Belgium’s French-speaking region in the south, Wallonia, with its rolling hills, lush green landscapes and picturesque towns with cobble stone streets.
Each town has their own colorful celebration taking place, generally, immediately before Lent. The festivities come complete with costumes, masks, street parties and processions filling the streets. Carnival is steeped in long standing Medieval traditions, which locals take pride in recreating each year.
