Sept. 23 Closing of Coronation Year

Next Saturday is the day : the wonderful 19th edition of the seven-year Kroningsfeesten will come to a close.

Next Saturday we will relive the Coronation mood with the Procession of Light, when we will all march through the streets of Tongeren together in plain clothes with a candle and with the Cause of Our Joy. We hope you will be there.
