Plaisirs d'hiver - Marche de noel 2019 - First Afternoon
From 29 November to 5 January, this unmissable event is back in central Brussels, and with it the guarantee of spending magical moments in the city's streets and being lost in wonder on Grand-Place before the incredible sound and light show and stunning Christmas tree.
Also on the programme: the traditional big wheel, covered ice rink, chalets, merry-go-rounds and countless activities for young and old, not forgetting the art installations and illuminations that create a unique atmosphere in the capital. This year, we have a very big special guest, 55 cm to be precise: the Manneken-Pis, who will be celebrating his 400th birthday with a whole host of festive activities.
Every year, the City of Brussels works twice as hard to put on an even more enjoyable and seamless event for local people and our many international visitors. Last year, it attracted nearly three million! Its success also benefits hotels and businesses in the centre, which post impressive figures.
And to share the Christmas joy, the Winter Pop popup village will stop off in four areas of the city. Every weekend, free activities will be organized with community groups and local figures. Caravans, lights, firepits, all kinds of artists, music, games... For the third year, Winter Pop will spread the Winter Wonders' fairy dust across Brussels.
The City of Brussels and the organizers thank the Brussels's artists Guillaume Desmaret & Arnaud Debal of the Farm Prod collective for the realization of the visual of Winter Wonders 2019. www.farmprod-collective.be
