Winterwarm

Hello everyone!

This past couple of weeks, our forest has been awoken from the darkness by a festival – WinterWarm. A joined effort between de Hoge Rielen and de Warande (culture center in Turnhout), this event was way more popular than we initially thought – especially because of the cold and rainy weather.

The goal was to illuminate the domain, bringing together numerous forms of artistic expression in a friendly environment where everyone could appreciate it. There were a lot of families with children, as well as couples or groups of friends walking around the forest in the evenings – quite impressive if you ask some non-belgian folks as us.

We helped a bit where we could – mostly working as park guards or serving drinks at the bar. We also embraced the group spirit, joining everyone around the fire (with a cold one in our hand).

One of the best sugarcoats of all time were the special edition postcards! They were available at the café, as well as a post box, so everyone could write one and send love through the mail. We have evidence that some made it to Austria (though Portugal is taking longer).
