#CombatDesReines or #Battle of the #Queens is an event in which a #cow fights another cow ultimately for the title of La Reine des Reines ("the queen of queens").

This #Swiss #festival in #May is important because the cows, especially the winner increases dramatically in value & their offspring fetch high prices at auctions. At the end of the year, a grand final is held in #Aproz , where the six best from seven districts do battle in six weight categories.

#Lucerne #Carnival ( #Fasnacht ) starts every year in #February on the Thursday before Ash Wednesday with a big bang. There are also big parades on Dirty Thursday and the following Monday.

A major attraction during the #Festival are the #Guggemuusige ... dressed-up and masked or made-up carnival cliques who play well-known tunes on their brass and percussion instruments, rather loudly and not really in tune.

#Murten ( #Morat ) #Light #Festival takes place each #January ... in 2017 between the 11th & 22nd.

For 12 days, people can witness a lighting spectacle of superlatives. From artistic productions on buildings to awesome illuminations all over the city, to hundreds of #lanterns floating in #Lake #Murten aka #Murtensee , be prepared to be amazed.

The #Montreux #Jazz #Festival is a #music festival held annually in early #July in Montreux on the #LakeGeneva shoreline.

Originally a pure jazz festival, it opened up in the 1970s and today presents artists of nearly every imaginable music style.
