Photos from Silvesterlauf Zurich 2012

Sunday’s Silvesterlauf was a successful event in Zurich with crowds thronging the streets as people paraded around in all sorts of costumes, from traditional lycra sports attire to various forms of fancy dress, ranging from angels, to devils to Father Christmases, to red hot chilli peppers and everything in-between. ┬áThere was even someone running through the city dressed as a box!

Parts of the city were closed to traffic to accommodate the run which is called the Silvesterlauf (actually meaning New Year’s run) but for some strange reason it always takes place in the middle of December.

A fun event, maybe you’ll want to take part next year?
