Mons: Doudou Festival

  • June 23, 2015

The city of Mons transforms into a mass ritual of joy on the weekend of Trinity Sunday during the Doudou festival. The whole city partakes in celebrating Ducasse de Mons. Every corner of the old medieval town leading to the main square is decorated and food and drink stalls are set up to serve the large crowd. The locals, young and old, children and all family members gather in cobbled streets, joined by tourists and people from nearby villages and larger cities such as Brussels. Modern and traditional Belgian music plays loudly from every street. I had never witnessed such a huge celebration in one city.
