Re: Street Parade fotos

i went to the street parade with my 8 year old in the afternoon.
the strangest thing i've seen was the Opel stage with 3 dancers. that was a bit desparate marketing.

apart from that it was pretty nice but I think I'm too old for it and my kid is too young

Re: Street Parade fotos

Went with my wife and 1yr old son for some fun at the parade, he refused earcaps and earplugs so went shopping, grabbed a restaurant and of to home it was, gonna watch a movie in a short.

Can't wait till he's older and these things will be easier with him, before the kid we always went to these things to party till the sun would come up again.

Plenty of places to buy much cheaper, buying at the most expensive stands shows that you either don't care, or are to lazy to walk a few hundred meters more (if even).

As much fun as leaning against the wall in a disco.

No thanks.

You and your prizes...

Tell me more

Wouldn't the teams for Züri Clean be faster anyway?

I had a lovely day (and too much sun! damn red neck ) in the mountains hiking.. it was almost as crowded as the Street Parade, I can tell!

It's great, but personally wouldn't go there anymore (maybe just too old ).

Was at the very first one, as needed to park the car when Sechseläuten Square was a parking place.

Think it's great - it marked the turning of Zürich into something more!

Damn smart phone; I do not know it always posts the pictures upside down or sideways.
I even rotated the pictures before posting but they still showed up the wrong way

Re: Street Parade fotos

At the end of Bahnhofstrasse on the lake they erected a monumentally large sound stage with massive sound system and very large video screen to ram advertising into the peoples heads. The sound they put out was way louder than the music from the trucks rolling by with their by comparison mini speakers. Such a shit by these big advertisers!! They should have trashed it.
