On Friday we celebrate our 50th Fair with a reception and 2 performances from the past 10 years (Simon Six and Tante Carla). We celebrate this anniversary with a parade through the neighborhood (with the giants of Melle and the Pink Elephant Confrérie), some speeches and a reception.
Saturday we have our football tournament, the family bike ride, children’s entertainment, the children’s jogging, the children’s party with Joachim, a spectacular performance by Dr Fred & The Medicine Men (a great success at the previous fair) and a flashy DJ set by Bucky. We provide bratwurst and burgers.
On Sunday afternoon we organize a delicious summer barbecue and the final of the football tournament.
The neighborhood committee Melle Dries was established to bring the residents and sympathizers in the Dries district together every summer to meet each other again or to get to know new people at the 3-day neighborhood fair. During the fair they offer a range of activities for young and old. In the evenings, we always conclude with some quality performances. Every year they also contribute to charity by organizing a G-sport cycling race in the neighbourhood.
When: From Friday, July 29 to Sunday, July 31, 2022.
Where: Vossenstraat 115 9090 Melle
