The Swiss National Day Picnic at Castle Hill Showground, organised by the Swiss Yodlers of Sydney and the Swiss Folksdance Group Alpegruess, was once again a great success.
This is the largest gathering of Swiss compatriots and friends in the Southern Hemisphere and again, we looked forward to welcoming over 1500 patriotic visitors this year.
The variety of stalls kept everyone busy offering many Swiss delicacies and products. The BBQ proved to be very popular with bratwurst, cervelats and fleishkase available. The tombola prize list was massive this year and many lucky visitors won some great prices. The bar was also very busy offering wine, beer, schnapps, coffee and tea. There were also many attractions for the children, including a huge selection of rides, a petting zoo and bottle fishing.
