On Carnival Sunday, carnival in Heist kicks off with a fishing mass to commemorate drowned fishermen, subsequently there is a flower tribute at the 'Vissershuldeplein'. In the late afternoon the carnival parade goes out, with the participation of giants 'Pier' and 'Wanne', and dozens of floats and hundreds of masked revelers.
