Binche Travel Guide
Madri Gras / Carnival / Parties / → All Tags
With Mardi Gras/Carnival here, it's the perfect time to figure out what parties to hit this time next year. On Forbes' list of the World's 12 Biggest Parties, the biggies are all represented, but one that was new to us was the Carnival in Binche, 40 miles from Brussels. Not so much with the naked flesh at this medieval celebration, but there are "roving Mam'selles" --men in drag -- and thousands of oranges being hurled through the air. Throw in the possibility of lots of good, good beer, and you've got yourself a party, cher.
