This afternoon there was a colorfull event in my neighbourhood: BorgerRio. Despite the drizzle, the groups left the audience with a feeling of sunshinie…

Enjoy the gallery!



Does this have any cultural significance, or is it just people dressing up in costumes?

Hi Frank! The event took place in Borgerhout, which has a really mixed population. And therefore the cultural live there is also very mixed. During the event there were groups with South-American and African origins. And the murgas are a modern (Latin American influenced) kind of brass bands and majorettes. So it was not just people dressing up, but it was a cultural event.

Thanks Eddy! Very interesting diversity of people and costumes. Great photographs!
