The Three Kings (galette des rois ) parade on Friday 6th January 2017 will begin at 18:00 at the place du Midi (opposite the La Combe shopping centre) in Nyon.
This parade is fun for all the family, it winds through the town and ends up at the Place du Château where a big galette/ cake (baked by local bakers) is served up to the town’s citizens. Wrap up warm (although there is usually vin chaud on offer for adults at the end of the parade)! Photos below from a previous year’s “galette des rois” event.
On Sunday 8th January there will be a Lake Swim Party in Nyon organised by the bains3jetees association. The party begins at 13:00 and the lake swim at 14:00. If you are brave enough to join the other swimmers in the water (and swim in a fancy dress costume!) then registration is required. Click here to register. A glass of champagne followed by a bowl of hot soup will be on offer for the swimmers and the sauna made available for them until 16:00.
For those who prefer just to watch the event there will be a pancake stall and vin chaud to purchase on the day.
