Parade in Neuchatel

A parade, complete with band, horses, and flaming torches went past my place in downtown Neuchatel an hour or two ago. What was it?

We're new here in Switzerland - this sort of event really makes for a great experience!

Re: Parade in Neuchatel

It was the traditional Neuchatel band 'Les Armourins' - I read about the parade the other day in the local paper, but forgotten what they were celebrating exactly! Glad you enjoyed it - and welcome to Neuchatel.
Coming to the end of year party on 25th? See event, and sign up if you'd like to come and meet some of us locals.

Here they are on another occasion:

Thanks Odile! That was them alright. I must say I like the kid in the video - looks like he's having a very nice time.

We have two younger kids, so we don't get out as much as we'd like, but I'll check out the event details!

There will be plenty of children at the party - they would be very welcome, as would you

Where are you from Nassor?
