Larger-than-life comic strip characters will storm the capital's major arteries. The Balloon's Day Parade is raring to go and display its gargantuan balloons to an ever-larger audience.
Every year a new balloon joins the parade. So this time, to celebrate the anniversary of the Smurfs, Peyo's most famous character will be adding a burst of blue to the event!
The spectacular balloon inflation will begin in the morning on Place des Palais. Over thecourse of the afternoon, Spirou, Tintin, Le Chat, Boule, Blork de Kid Paddle, Lucky Luke, and their new friends will begin their annual promenade through the Brussels' main arteries.
