On the way to the Grand Place, Mr Monkey was passed by a horse drawn wagon carrying a band. When he got to the Grand Place he found the band playing and found out that they were there to promote cheeses made in the French speaking parts of Belgium. At least that seemed to be their excuse for having jackets decorated like cows and for handing out cheese-based recipe leaflets.
You can read (in French) about Walloon cheeses at the Agence Wallonne pour la Promotion d'une Agriculture de Qualitié website.
