Well last weekend we had a pretty big party in Zürich! Maybe you have heard of it – the Street Parade 2017! A couple of friends and I went down to Zurich on Saturday to have some fun and enjoyed ourselves at the Street Parade.
When we were a lot younger, my family took us to the Street Parade. But only to have a look at all the people in costumes etc. It was always a great morning. Before the music started we usually left. Now it’s a lot different. My sisters and I go to the actual parade and dance our shoes off.
It’s a 2.4 km long parade where 25 love mobiles (trucks with stages) drive along. Around the whole area there are smaller stages and parties going on too. It’s mostly house and techno music. But the Street Parade stands for so much more – it encourages diversity, love, peace, freedom and tolerance. So it basically is huge party with some great thoughts and meaning behind it.
We went on a boat (my granddad’s) as it’s so much more comfortable to not having to push your way through the crowds etc. We enjoyed ourselves and had a big party going on on the lake. Being just in front of the Quai bridge we heard all the music from the trucks or sometimes our boat neighbors blasted out some of their music. Without rambling on, here are some pictures of the day!
All in all I had a great time and I’m definitely going back next year! It’s been a blast dancing on the boat, having a few drink and just having a great day at the biggest party in Europe. Between dancing, eating and drinking we had the option of going for a swim, which was a welcomed way to cool off.
So did you hear of the Street Parade before? Maybe you have been yourself?
Have a nice day lovelies, xx
