    Dag van Lauwe

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every little town in the Netherlands has it's own feast or something like it. Here it's called: Dag van Lauwe which means: Day of the Town.

    Lauwe is dialect for Beneden Leeuwen.

    This is a day full of festivities: A lot of attractions for kids, a market, musicstages, demonstrations of fire brigade etc.

    And a special event:
    Maas en Waalse Buikschuifkampioenschappen
    Translated: Regional bellysliding Championships.
    The trick is to slide as far on your belly as you can and as fast as you can! The one with the longest distance in the fastest time wins!

    This event is normally celebrated in the first weekend of july!
