Sechseläuten Zurich 2013
The amount of time it takes for the Böögg`s head to burn down will determine how good (or bad) the weather will be during the summer. This year it took forever, meaning this summer will be a bad one (the Böögg got it right so far…)

First comes the parade (at Bellevue):

As a friend of mine told me, if you look at the time on both churches the clocks are perfectly synchronized. Swiss precision!
