A more than successful opening weekend

#GWF17

We want to thank you for all for the massive turnout on the first few days of the Gentse Winterfeesten. The squares in the historic centrum have never looked so festive. On the Korenmarkt, the big wheel Grand Soleil turned at full capacity, surrounded by Christmas chalets and winter bars. The Botaniek in Klein Turkije and the Moosebar next to the ice skating ring welcomed a lot of visitors. On Friday, the ladies of Kryos on Tour performed a wonderful ice skating routine and the Charles Dickens Orchestra created a cosy atmosphere on the Christmas market all weekend. The shopping Sunday attracted a lot of people to the city centre and the snow made for spectacular scenes that morning.
