This festival is one of the liveliest and most vibrant in the Liège region. A major event in the ardent city, on 15/08/14!
- Flea markets,
- Puppet shows,
- Traditional dances,
- Outdoor mass with the sermon in the Walloon dialect,
- "Campes" firing (large crackers arranged in rosaries),
- Procession (with the giants from the Liège Province),
- Popular games (greasy pole...),
- Concerts and a variety of other activities.
A large number of customs are displayed: culinary traditions (with food and drink such as pèkèt and boukètes) as well as traditions and popular games.
But that is not all. The end of the festivities on 16 August is highlighted by the "Burial of the Mati l'Ohé".
A ludicrous funeral escorted by fanfares and tearful widows...
