Binche: Lundi Gras

Lundi Gras at Binche Carnaval, Belgium: children in costume in the town square.

The main Carnaval at Binche takes place over the three days leading up to and including the main event on Shrove Tuesday, known as Dimanche Gras, Lundi Gras and Mardi Gras (although band rehearsals and various other preparations take place for six weeks before that).
