Saint-Roch Folkloric March in Châtelet
The origins of the folkloric march of Saint-Roch can be found in a 17th century pilgrimage during which the image of Notre-Dame of Rome was carried to the monastery of Soleilmont. The march came back into being in 1961 and nowadays some 800 walkers in costumes of the 1st Empire, divided over nine associations participate in it, one which consists only of children from 3 to 16 years.
