Well the Swiss sure know how to party! Street Parade 2012 was one big colourful event with sun, fun, music, crazy costumes, mad hair – and LOTS of people! The bridges and streets were packed to bursting and the floats were buzzing as they drove along followed by revellers. Some people took to swimming in the lake to cool off as others just danced the day and night away!

Today the thermometer scaled the heights in Switzerland with reported temperatures of up to 35.3 degrees in Sitten. In Zurich it wasn’t quite that warm – but it was hot! However, not everywhere was quite so sizzling. In Interlaken there was even a hail storm with large hail stones – see picture
