The Horse Bayard parade on 24th May 2020 promises to be again a formidable event with historical and contemporary scenes, music, theater and dance brought by almost 2000 costumed figurants and actors. Some 20 floats, drawn by the most beautiful horses, provide an impressive setting. Acrobats, stilt-walkers, standard-bearers and special effects boost the festive spectacle.
The highlight of every parade is of course the prancing and dancing Horse Bayard which is carried by the sturdy dockers guild and ridden by the four children of Aymond. Incessantly the Horse Bayard band plays stirring music. The fiddler, Kalleke Step, the arquebusiers and halberdiers do not recede from the Horse Bayard. Together they treat the 100,000 spectators along the course of the parade to a unique experience.
Be in Dendermonde on May 24th 2020!
