Ghent light festival gets criticized

The Ghent light festival took place from Thursday the 11th of November until Sunday the 14th. It is a festival where you follow a trail through the streets of Ghent and can view various light artworks. The festival was a great success, too great in fact.  The organization was criticized because there were too many people and because it did not seem covid safe. But the visitors were enthusiastic nonetheless.
