Picnic of 1st August
Roll up, roll up to the great picnic in the park to celebrate Swiss National Day!
Visit the local market and stock up with top quality local products for your picnic. You’ll find a marvellous spread on show with nitrogen ice creams, hamburgers specially created for the day, fabulous cuts of meat for you to grill on site, traditional breads, gourmet salads and lots more besides. The Association des Toques (chefs’ association) will be taking part in this event with culinary demonstrations to delight the eye and, of course, the taste buds!
So grab your blanket and head off to the park opposite the lake, or just relax in one of the deckchairs provided. Kids can create their very own Chinese lantern at a dedicated workshop and proudly display it as part of the official procession at Ouchy.
Contestants in the World Cycling Championships will be at the event, presenting 2-wheeled displays to entrance young and old alike.
Enjoy your picnic in a fun and friendly atmosphere before the final firework display rounds off the evening.
