Belgium: Friendly Greetings from Aalst

Aalst is a city and municipality on the Dender River, Belgium. Aalst is famous for its carnival festivities, celevrated every year before Lent. During the celebration, the former town hall belfry is the site of the traditional 'throwing of the onions". A big parade crosses the city on Sunday, with about 70 groups of costumed volunteers and parade cars.
