On February 1, Manneken-Pis expanded his wardrobe once again. On this day, all of Binche was in Brussels to give the “Petit Julien” a new traditional Gille costume. From the fitting to the official inauguration, BrusselsLife did not miss a thing. A behind the scenes video of this little Brusseleir is here for you to check out!

Manneken-Pis will be wearing his new outfit this Tuesday, and all evidence suggests that he will dress the same for all the coming Mardi Gras as well. It will be up to the weather, like in Binche, if he will wear the ostrich feather hat or not…
