If you are against Aalstenaars says that they are not allowed to laugh, then they do the 100% sure yet. That turned out to be Saturday night again at the Arendprinsverkiezing in the city. The Arendcarnaval is a smaller version of the Aalst carnival, for the Aalstenaars on one carnival is not enough. The jury of this small prinsenverkiezing decided to all ‘Jewish ' outfit’ to the carnival festivities to come this weekend. They wore all the typical black hat and pijpenkrullen.
“all the hoopla about The Vismooil’n and the so-called anti-semitism, that is really far-fetched,” Ignace Verhaegen, one of the judges with a Jewish hat on. “Aalst laughs with everyone and everything. We are recognized as a world heritage site for that street carnival. You may not ask us to slavishly drafting”, what it sounds like.
