Manneken Pis goes green for St. Paddy's Day

For the very first time, the most famous inhabitant of Brussels joined in this year's Saint Patrick's Day festivities. Although he wasn't allowed any Guinness, Manneken Pis still smiled happily as he showed off his new flat cap, green trousers and a shiny green shamrock ribbon.

TV Brussel did a nice little story on it, with a couple of Irish people thrown in as well (so you'll understand at least some of what's being said). You can watch the clip here.

The entire wardrobe of Manneken Pis can be found at the Museum of the City of Brussels.


  1. Nice post and video! ^^

    We can celebrate too, with the hat we brought from the Shantalla concert ;) <3

  2. Oh yeah, I'd forgotten about that one :p Why not? ;)
