Gilles

The Gilles are the oldest and principal participants in the Carnival of Binche in Belgium. They go out on Shrove Tuesday from 4AM until late hours and dance to traditional songs. Other cities, such as Nivelles, have a tradition of Gilles at carnival, but the Carnival of Binche is by far the most famous.

In 2003, the Carnival of Binche was proclaimed one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
