A day at the races – Waregem Koerse 2016

The summer holidays are over, time to get back on the blogging mode. Traditionally, the first Tuesday after the last Sunday of August is blocked in my agenda. Since 1849 Belgium’s Waregem Koerse is the place to be when you like horse racing, fancy hats and good champagne.Horses racing green grass people It is 11 years since my first time at Waregem Koerse and I’ve always kept my first parking card as a souvenir.Green grass parking Waregem KoerseThings have changed a lot in the past years, but one thing is still the same: an enthousiastic crowd and a great atmosphere. This year, a brand new futuristic VIP-building by Naessens Group was the eyecatcher of the event. The 45.000 visitors could enjoy a sparkly glass of champagne while admiring the view. Crowd Sun Building Actually, I was never a big fan of horse races, but I must admit, the managent around the races is very horse friendly and those 3 laps of racing the track and jumping the fences is very exciting!Horse racingHorse racing
