Appenzell and Mother's Day?

Hi!

I had read somewhere that on Mother's Day in Appenzell there is a kind of procession of all the village mothers in a town square before a church service.

I thought that it might be nice to bring my wife - who is mother to our 3 kids - to this town and see this kind of medieval procession if in fact it takes place and if it is actually worth seeing.

Has anyone seen or heard of this event? And if so, would you think it is worth trying to see?

Thanks!
KevinD

Bit far to come isn't it - all the way from Massachusetts to Appenzell for that.

Actually I am in Zurich, and have been here for a while. I suppose I should update my profile.
