Every year, on the second Saturday of May, the Cat Parade takes place in Ypres, Belgium, in West Flanders.

It is organized in honor of the purrs that were killed and sacrificed in the Middle Ages. Every month, the so-called cat Wednesdays, when local cats were caught and thrown from the local belfry. This continued until 1817.

This ritual was reintroduced in 1938 in a plush version - plush mascots are thrown from the belfry. Currently, the parade has become a favorite festival of purr lovers combined with numerous happenings, competitions and other attractions.

Apparently, whoever brings a soft toy home is guaranteed happiness all year round. This weekend, such a parade will take place on the streets of the city.
