National Swiss Day

National Swiss Day takes place on August 1st every year where they celebrate their country and pride. It usually starts out early with the farmer's brunch, then fireworks at night. This year was our first time actually going to the farmers brunch, and it was great. They had food produced locally by the farmer such as eggs, bacon, rosti (swiss style hash browns), cheese, yogurt, fruit, and drinks. It was all you can eat, which is not very common in Switzerland or Europe for that matter.

The kids were able to get their faces painted and listened to some traditional Swiss music. We will definitely be doing this again next year.
