Remembrance Day in Brussels

Question

Hi!

Does anyone know if Brussels recognises Remembrance Day or if there are any events related to it?

Armistice Day (11 November) is a public holiday here, as it is in France. I'm not sure about events to mark the day generally in Belgium, but I know there is always a big event held at the Menin Gate in Ypres. Some more info (in English) is here: http://www.greatwar.co.uk/events/ypres-salient-events-armistice-day.htm
