A little late for Carnival
but in Brussels it doesn't matter. This was about a week late but the people in the Marolles section of the city are working class and said to be "special"anyway so they can get away with it! This section of town is overlooked by the gigantic Palais de Justice, which casts its shadow over it when the sun decides to shine on the European capital. The neighborhood is small but has some very good restaurants and a really unique Ethiopian coffee house. .

More Carnival
The Carnival parade that day in the Marolles district was small but those taking part were certainly enjoying their little, loud parade.

And the band played on...
A small carnival parade in the Marolles area of Brussels. The working class citizens who live just below the Palais de Justice (there is a glass elevator that takes you up there and down again) love life and celebrating.
