The Gilles of Binche hold oranges as they parade during the carnival event in Binche on Feb. 21, 2012. The Binche carnival is now a UNESCO World Heritage event. Up to 1,000 Gilles parade in the city center, wearing a hat covered with ostrich feathers and a red, yellow, and black medieval costume adorned with bells and decorated with fluffy lace at the neck, wrists, and ankles.
