St Rochus August 15, 2011 - Aarschot (12)

Posted by
Tamara (Aarschot, Belgium) on 2 October 2011 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Each year dated August 15th, the town of Aarschot illuminates thousands of candles in honor of St Rochus who saved the city of the plague. A fairy-like spectacle which attracts a very important crowd.

Chaque année en date du 15 Août, la ville d'Aarschot s'illumine de milliers de bougies en l'honneur de St Roch qui a sauvé la ville de la peste. Un spectacle féérique qui attire une foule très importante.

Elk jaar op 15 Augustus, verlicht de stad Aarschot zich met duizenden kaarsjes in de eer van St Rochus die de stad van de pest heeft gered. Een sprookjesachtige voorstelling die een zeer belangrijke menigte aantrekt.
