You could feel the Belgian spirit in Brussels this weekend as Belgian flags surrounded the town park. Friday started the 60th annual Belgian Days festival which runs through Sunday. Brussels Lions Club President Jared Spude said a few hundred people came to the event on Friday for a live concert. On Saturday morning some took part in the biggest EMR Run the event has had to date. As that was starting a line formed and looked on at the homemade Belgian waffle breakfast. Live music is another staple of the festival, and Spude talked about the event's popularity and the lengths people go to make it.
The event was held in drive-thru fashion last year. Spude said seeing people of all ages back on the dance floor was special.
