August 14-17, 2008 is this year’s celebration of gorgeous, colorful flowers.
They are mostly begonias, laid out in a carpet-like pattern on the magnificent Grand Place in Brussels.
It would be difficult to find a more dramatic, elegant backdrop anywhere in Europe.
It’s free to walk around and admire the carpet, or for three Euro, you can climb up to a balcony on the first floor of the Town Hall, to see the intricate pattern from above.
If you have a choice, see it on one of the first days, while the colors are at their brightest.
