Kids Parade at Sechseleuten

Sometimes I love these public events, specially the ones that are not hugely crowded. Here in Zürich we have two major events, the first one is Sechseleuten, where we burn a snow man to officially welcome Spring and the other one is the Streetparade, which is sort of a ravers mardi gras in summer.

However, with the Sechseleuten event, there is also a smaller parade on Sunday, which for kids to do an official parade in historic costumes and feel important.

Here are a few shots from the event, enjoy! All shots were taken with the Leica Monochom, which is of course the perfect camera for a colorful event like this one🙂

Up on Lindenplatz, I found this Blacksmith, making bells. Of course I tried not to interfere with his hammer🙂

I really wonder what she was telling her friend🙂

The moment he realized he lost his lucky charm was way more important than the parade🙂

 

no parade is complete without a brassmand :)

I know chinese dragons are not typically Swiss, but who cares if they have fun?
