We're in luck! Our event coincides with Brussels’ famous Ommegang, a sumptuous annual pageant featuring 1,400 participants in costume in a reenactment of the 1549 visit of Emperor Charles V to Brussels to present his son Philip II to the populace. Be sure to catch key moments of this particularly Belgian event.
