American scenes in Maastricht... You may have seen a ticker-tape parade in a movie, but now you will have the chance to experience it for yourself in Maastricht. On Saturday 14 September, we will be honouring the veterans who fought for our freedom in the Second World War. Fly-pasts with historical aircraft, bands and army vehicles will ensure a festive parade.

The liberation flame that the runners of Maastricht Athletics Club brought from Caen (950 km) will be part of the parade. They will hand the flag from Mortain (Normandy) and the European flag (presented by Frans Timmermans in Brussels) to Mayor Annemarie Penn-te Strake, after which these will be placed with the other flags in the town hall that have been brought over the years by athletes from Normandy and Belgium as a symbol of friendship and freedom.

There promises to be plenty of ticker-tape (particularly in Hoenderstraat street) and it will be in any event a very exciting occasion. We will commemorate and celebrate freedom together!
