Défilé Militaire du 21 Juillet pour la Fête Nationale Belge

by Vincent

Today on the 21st of July, being the Belgian National Day for those who might not know. I headed to the Parc de Bruxelles in the centre of Brussels for the military parade, that takes place every year in front of the Belgian King and the government. Here are some pictures from the Défilé Militaire du 21 Juillet.

It was a great day and those are very nice pictures. Have you also got the pictures of European Police Forces? I am very interested to see them as we were part of the defile. Regards from Poland!

Greetings my Polish friend,

Glad to hear you enjoyed taking part in the 2010 edition of the parade! I am afraid I don't have the pictures of the European Police Forces as I wasn't able to attend this year. The pictures shown here are from 2009..
