Belgian Kermiss Features Modern Day Drifters

The entire community is invited to attend the second annual Brussels Belgian Kermiss in celebration of the harvest on Sept. 1 at the Brussels Town Park.

This Kermiss celebration was started by the parish last year as a way to bring back the Belgian tradition that used to be celebrated by each community as a thanksgiving for the harvest – a time of fun before the winter came and kept people close to home.

The event begins at 10 am with a Mass of Thanksgiving, followed by food and fun from 11 am – 4 pm. Highlights include music by the Modern Day Drifters, children’s games, games, a Cooyah tournament and a wide variety of great prizes to take home through a bucket raffle, gun raffle, live auction and silent auction.

Hamburgers, jutt, Belgian trippe, booyah, hot dogs, Belgian pies and other desserts will sold along with beer, wine, soda and water.

All proceeds from the Brussels Belgian Kermiss will benefit St. Francis & St. Mary Parish.
