Walking around Ghent during visit of ST Nicolas .

Every year the city of Ghent welcomes Sinterklaas during the Joyful Entry.
Sinterklaas arrives in Ghent with a tourist boat. The Saint is of course welcomed by the mayor and his ships from Festivities.
Then the Saint makes a trip with the carriage through the city center, accompanied by a fanfare. Afterwards, the children can participate in all sorts of Sinterklaas activities.
Nowadays it is a fixed value that a few weeks before 6 December Sinterklaas will be festively welcomed by the children.
The entry is a Sinterklaas tradition that has come over from the Netherlands a few decades ago.
The first Sinterklaas introductions were held in the Netherlands in the 19th century.

I hope that you enjoy it
