There are plenty of P+R parkings around Vevey, the only problem is the money grabbing bastards charge Chf 30.-- to park !! (Chf 20.-- if you pay upfront on line, no guarantee of place of course.....)

I went on the weekend, and absolutely loved it. I think the best way to describe it is a bit like the opening of the Olympics, but with everything Swiss, including yodeling, amazing choirs, cows, marching bands, alp horns, goats, and, and, and. Well, and wine.

But the best about it was the energy in the city. There are 5‘500 participants, all of them in colourful costumes, and they walk through the city, before the show. And then, it all comes together in the show, and the energy is amazing.

Every day, one canton is the guest, and there is a parade in the afternoon (dunno when it is when the show is in the morning), staffed by the respective canton. The parade is for free, and so are the many shows on the small stages.

If you are into this kind of thing, I would definitely recommend it. There are still tickets, especially for the morning shows. I would sit in the corners, as this provides a view of all four side stages.

Go for the night shows if you can - the lighting effects are much clearer during the night. Moreover, its awfully hot during the day. Still some last minute tickets are available.

Yes, pg2007 is right, the effects at night are worth coming at night.

If you consider coming, one more thing: SBB is now selling tickets with a CHF 30 reduction.

Enjoy!

Here is the SBB/CFF link for the shows on the 6th and 11th. The CHF 30.- discount is valid for some of the more expensive tickets.

Went to the final performing this afternoon. Took the train to/from Nyon. Had more hassles getting to Nyon station because of the triathlon- but that has ended as well with a big Thunderstorm around 4 PM.

Enjoyed the performance very much. We had waited until today because it was Vaud’s day in the sun.

I hope they give us a discount for the next performance, in 20-25 years.
