'Opening time' at the chilbi Wädenswil?

Does anyone know what time the chilbi starts in Wädenswil today? I've trawled the web, but can't find start times for today. Thanks!

I should add that I know the church service starts at 10, but I was wondering about the activities and rides?

Thanks, but do the rides actually start at 9:30? I would've thought they only start some time after the church service?

It would be after 10.30am and get very crowded mid day onwards especially later in the evening.

Brilliant, thanks. So it's sort of manageable from 10:30 to lunchtime?

Yes, that is correct, based on previous years.

Re: chilbi Wädenswil?

From Zürich HB, there is the S8 ( 34 minutes to arrive ), S2 ( 26 minutes to arrive ) and the Inter Regio heading to Chur departing every 12 minutes past the hour arriving in 20 minutes.

Venue is beside the Bahnhof as well as no more than 2 mins walk on the other side.

Re: 'Opening time' at the chilbi Wädenswil?

Some pictures taken within the last 30 minutes.

For Chilbi in Wädenswil, the normal rules about Nachtruhe ( slience at night ) do not apply.

We were there at 2-4pm and the crowds are definitely manageable. No waiting time for rides at all. So anyone wanting to go today might want to go for early afternoon to miss the crowds.
