Street Parade-not to be missed?

Our family is visiting Switzerland from California. We are leaving Zurich tomorrow and will be in Wengen area for the next week. Just learned that Street Parade is on Saturday. Wonder if it is worth returning for the day from Wengen. Seems like a long way to come for a parade, but is it not to be missed? Can you describe what it's like?

Thanks so much.

Dear galewinBerke,

If you search youtube for zurich street parade you will find many clips which should give you an idea. www.youtube.com/watch…

If you like crowds, many people in costumes, floats and dancing to techno music then you will like the parade.

Hope this helps.

You are right - it's a long jway from Wengen to Zurich. Personally I would rather enjoy the mountain scenery instead of doing this trip. Anyway Streetparade is not really a family event. The techno music is loud and the consumption of alcoholics and other drugs is important. You could catch an eye if you would stay in Zurich, but I doubt whether it justifies the long journey.

Thanks. We have just arrived in Wengen and have no intention of leaving any time soon. Street Parade will have to wait for another year - perhaps sans children.

Appreciate all the input. Helped me see things clearly.
