Re: Fête des Vendanges Neuchâtel 25-26-27 September 2009

I was under the impression it kicked off at noon today? Not that it matters now...

Unfortunately I really don't know any of you yet but would like to! Only moved here at the end of July so don't know many people at all! Anyone want to meet or something let me know.

Which night is the local one, you mean Saturday? The Friday is always for the other Swiss? Or was it more of a joke

Re: Fête des Vendanges Neuchâtel 25-26-27 September 2009

Last night was for the locals. It was really lovely !!!
Later this afternoon people will come in from all over the place.
The Swiss Germans love to show up for this Wine Festival for the obvious reasons

Are you sure that wasn't due to the wine.

Sounds like it was a good event. It is good to here positive things about events over that side of the country, rather than mainly the Zurich area.

It isn't finished yet.

I wonder whether those EFers who came down from Zurich got picked up by those dear good samaritans who collected passed out folks from the streets during the night ... ... chuckle ...
