The Bright Brussels Festival dazzled 30,000 visitors

The Bright Brussels Festival dazzled 30,000 visitors

‘strong>Between 2 and 5 February 2017, the Bright Brussels Festival offered visitors an amazing spectacle, giving them the chance to marvel at some fantastic light installations along the banks of the canal.

The Quai des Péniches pulled out all the stops with 10 majestic pieces and the light parade, which lit up the area for 4 days. To mark the occasion, artists and groups came from Belgium and around the world. A fantastic opportunity for visitors from all backgrounds to see this area in a new light and make the most of the event to treat themselves from one or more of the 10 food trucks selling their wares.

Some 30,000 visitors wandered along the Quai des Péniches against the backdrop of the Danbor Talka parade.

The Bright Brussels Festival was a fittingly upbeat end to the Bright Brussels Winter, which has lit up the area around Brussels’ inner ring road since 2 December. On the initiative of the Minister-President of the Brussels-Capital Region, Rudi Vervoort, and the Brussels Minister for mobility and public works, Pascal Smet, coordinated the arrangements for these majestic pieces right in the heart of the Capital of Europe.

The Bright Brussels Festival also collaborated with the Citizen Lights Festival in Schaerbeek. On 2, 3 and 4 February, a free shuttle bus took visitors between the 2 events.

We’ll see you in a year’s time for the next Bright Brussels Winter, and in two yeas for the next Bright Brussels Festival.

The Bright Brussels Festival stays open until midnight
