Brussels closed the streets for the annual car free Sunday, this year on 20th September. After a year and a half with coronavirus lockdowns, our society is reopening, step by step. On this edition of the car free Sunday, events were coming back. In the Parc Élisabeth in Koekelberg, for example, an Albanian dance group had a great performance during two hours. Not only the dancers were participating, the audience was dancing as well. Especially families and young people. Personally, it was a pleasure for me to see that persons with non-Albanian origins, joined the gathering too. Brussels’ diversity was even visible in a traditional Balkan event.
