The annual booyah and bread lunch will be held at the Belgian Heritage Center April 29, 11 am to 2 pm. Booyah, a hearty soup typically cooked in outdoor kettles, is a traditional dish and a mainstay at gatherings in the Belgian settlement area. Guests will have the opportunity to view the exhibits that tell the story of the Belgian settlement area.
All proceeds will benefit the Belgian Heritage Center in its mission to preserve and promote the area’s unique culture, history and architecture. In keeping with this mission, there will be someone available to scan family and community photographs from the Belgian area. These images will become part of the Belgian Heritage Center’s collection and may be used for the center’s displays as well as genealogical and historical research.
The Belgian Heritage Center is located at 1255 Cty DK, Brussels. The menu includes booyah, bread, dessert and a beverage. The cost is $9 for adults, $5 for children ages 4 to 12, and free for children ages 3 or under. They will also offer a takeout bowl for $4 (bring your own container).
