This year, at the start of the big holiday, Melle is once again launching an uncensored version of the HeMelse Feesten. From 1 July, the local board of Melle, in collaboration with associations, catering and retail trade, will treat the public to a remarkable and extensive program.
The kick-off is planned with a performance by the Melse trio ‘Crooked Steps’ on the Gemeenteplein. Friday 1 July also promises to be a great day for the younger generation, because then the fair will also start and this until Thursday 7 July.
On Saturday 2 July, many Mellenaar can browse through second-hand books or even adopt a museum object. In the KultuurKafee children can participate in a cartoon drawing workshop and a cartoon exhibition takes place. On the same day, Belle Perez and Ebe, among others, are on the musical program. The latter earned his stripes as a semi-finalist of The Voice Kids.
Sunday 3 July will start with a luxurious breakfast, after which you can admire the motorcyclists during the motorcycle meeting. The whole day is dominated by the fair festivities, with a youth and flea market, world festival, street entertainment and banging Flemish music performances.
The night market will take place on Monday 4 July and you can network as an independent during the entrepreneurial café.
Alderman of events Frederik De Buck does not hide his joy. He happily informs us that it will be a great pleasure to be able to organize a full-fledged version of the parties after three years. And as a festive closing, our local government has again fireworks in store this year.
The Flemish Holiday on 11 July at the Lijsternest is also worth mentioning: from 6 pm everyone can sit down to enjoy The Mellvids Big Band, after which Peter Koelewijn & The Rockets are on stage.
Mayor De Maeseneer therefore concludes with great pride: this is an edition to be proud of, so I would like to invite everyone to take part in this impressive program. It will be an unmissable edition of the HeMel parties.
