Tintin and Snowy celebrated in Brussels

Belgium is famous for its comics. Over 100,000 people are expected to attend the Comic Festival in the Belgian capital this weekend.

Vistors can look forward to dozens of exhibitions, workshops, autograph sessions and an exciting festival program including concerts, open air movies and comic artists at work.

Huge ballons in the shape of the comic characters will be parading on Sunday. The highlight of the festival is the 100-kilometer (62-mile) Tintin and Snowy rally, with over 80 cars and motorcycles which appeared in the famous comics between 1946 and 1988.

Fans can also take the opportunity to visit comic museums. Brussels is the birthplace of Tintin as well as other famous European comics and over 600 cartoon artists live there.
