Herfstkriebels - Halloween in Bokrijk (Belgium)

Bokrijk is the "greenest" part of the city Genk (province of Limburg - the north-eastern part of Belgium), and known for the greatest "Open Air Museum" in Europe. On a regular basis there are every year several interesting events and festivities, attracting visitors even from over the borders.

Best known are the spectacular festivities in their forests in the period of Halloween and the winter period of Christmas, when the children are free from school, and have their holiday weeks.

This year there will be the "Autumn Tickles Festival" on the 28th of October and 1th of November. Because of the Children's Autumn Vacation, they are expecting a mass of visitors.

The organization of "Autumn Tickles" was inspired by the name "Bokrijk". "Rijk" means "Land". So they created 3 different "Lands", to entertain visitors, especially the children. There will be a more freaky and spooky "Tickle Land", a more joyful and playful "Autumn Land", but also a "Pop Land" with "performing" acts on a stage.

Tickle Land (Kriebelrijk)

In Tickle Land the trees are telling the story of "the Forest Monster". All the residents of the little village are concerned. Only when he sleeps, everybody is safe. So: "be very quiet...and pass him quietly on the tips of your toes". Walking through Tickle Land, there are several live acts on the walking path: a magic witch, a performing magician and witch, the witch "spider head", brave forest trolls, professor Dodo, and Hans with family Goose.

Autumn Land (Herfstrijk)

In Autumn Land you can enjoy, because there you can escape from the "curse of the Forest Monster". The Autumn Gnomes are enjoying with fun on a pleasureful playground. You can participate in all kind of "do activities", "play along theaters", or even join a "circus initiation", where you can become a "master playful gnome".

Pop Land (Poprijk)

In Pop Land will be a "Pop Stage", where you can see a "tickle disco". You can also join "Lotje's Fashion Show", but also listen to the live performance of "Brahim". At the end there will be a great "Dream Show". Imagine, you will be in a world, where everything is possible without obligations. You can dance, sing, and play.

For "toddlers" and the "youngest kids" will be a separate "Birthday Party" of "Lotje, the curious little witch" (translated in English: Lizzy, the curious little witch).

And for everybody: In Pop Land will be served snacks, drinks, while you sing, jump, swing, ...just whatever you like to do.
