If you are looking for a bit of sunshine and fun this weekend, how about travelling to Sion in the Valais? It’s around one hour 40 minutes on the train from Nyon and a little less to drive there.
Météo Suisse is currently forecasting sunshine in the afternoon for Saturday 10th February, perfect for the Carnival celebrations!
Carnival is a big event in the Valais and in Sion, it lasts over 6 days. On Saturday there will be a big carnival parade through the town with over 800 participants. There is a party atmosphere in the town, music from the many Guggenmusik bands and hundreds of people, either dressed in costume or on a themed float, take part in the celebrations. More details and timings on our sister site Living in Sion.
Don’t forget to “like” the Living in Sion site on Facebook too for info on what’s happening in the town.
