Photographer's Note

(Found on the net : "some 2.500 people have taken part in the biannual Brussels Zinneke Parade. A celebration of the capital’s diversity and the fraternity between its different ethnic groups, the colourful show attracted some 50.000 spectators.

The 5th edition of the Zinneke Parade was made up of several smaller neighbourhood parades that melted together into one big parade in the city centre.

Dozens of organisations, neighbourhood committees and individuals worked for months to get their colourful costumes and floats ready for today’s show.

(…) The name Zinneke Parade is derived from local slang. In Brussels dialect a “zinneke” refers to a mongrel. With inhabitants from all parts of the world, the organisers thought there was no name more suitable for their parade".
