My Hometown Oostende #8: “Ostend at Anchor”

Let’s finish the week with a new photo gallery? Last weekend, I’ve been twice  our local maritime event “Oostende voor Anker/Ostend at Anchor”. It’s an event with a lot of ships, vessels, folklore, music and attract so many visitors(250.000). More info about this event: Oostende voor Anker. Many backpackers/tourists are crazy about the beauty of Brugge/Bruges, so why not combine Bruges with a visit to my hometown Oostende and have stroll on this maritime event next year(next edition: 10/05 till 13/05)?
