One of the finest activities each year end are the Sylvester fires on the beach of Oostduinkerke (near the pool). At 4 o'clock pm the fire is lit with musical accompaniment. At 5:30pm a torchlight procession walks through the streets of downtown. The torches can be purchased on the spot. Meanwhile the potatoes and sprat dinner is roasted over a bonfire and they are offered for sale to the spectators. Who still has cold hands and feet can heat up with a cup of warm red wine. Finally, around 6pm, skilfully piled Christmas trees will be burned on the beach, after which a fireworks will transform the beach of Oostduinkerke into a beacon of light for the last time this year. Everyone is welcome!
