Each year on the Sunday afternoon of Sechseläuten weekend before the Böögg is burned on the Monday, there is the Children’s Parade in the centre of Zurich. Processions of children in beautiful costumes accompanied by marching bands, lots of flowers and animals, walk through the centre of the city as onlookers line the streets.

Photographer Geoff Pegler was there to capture the action of the “Kinderumzug” as it is known.

Of course the Böögg was very much in presence as he was wheeled around the city by cart and horse.

The poor Böögg looked as if he was enjoying his last breaths of freedom before he goes up in smoke at Sechselaeutenplatz on Monday at 6pm precisely. If he burns quickly it is supposed to mean Zurich will have a good Summer ahead. If he burns slowly – don’t ask!!!

We hope you enjoyed the photos of what was a fun event in Zurich. Don’t forget to get to Sechseläutenplatz well in advance of 6pm if you want a good view of the Böögg being set alight on Monday 8th April.
