Dèsalpe - Le Boéchet

It is almost that time of year, where I get very excited to go and see the beautiful cow parade! I can really recommend it to families with kids, or just people who want to see something really Swiss.
I'm aware that there are other Dèsalpes across the country, notably Valais with the real alps. Anyway, it's free and it's in Le Boéchet, Franches-Montagnes, Jura on October 8th 2011. Here are some picture I took last year!

Here's the website: http://www.desalpe.com/index07.htm

Unfortunately I am in Switzerland only in summer, so I miss the cows going up and coming down

Did anybody go to the big désalpe fiesta in Charmey? My friends who live there hate all the razmataz, and came here for peace and quiet.

Train - doesn't matter when you get there! Just in the car, I know they close off the road....
So yeah 14h30 is when they will arrive in Le Boéchet!
