As well as breath taking air shows, wake boarding events, tightrope walking, live concerts, folk dancing and food and drink of every type and from every country, the sky was filled on Friday and Saturday evening with beautiful firework displays.

The firework displays were accompanied by music and each show lasted for 30 minutes. There were also fairground rides and lots of entertainment.


Some even dressed up in costume for the event too.

For the first time ever the churches of St Peter and the Grossmunster were connected together by a high wire rope, and to great applause the 58 year old tightrope artist Alfons Bügler successfully walked across it on Saturday afternoon, 55 metres above the Limmat.

There were also sky divers to be seen flying above the Limmat and onto a pontoon on the lake.
