From to

Brandons of Payerne are one of the oldest carnivals in Switzerland. A weekend per year in Payerne, the madness is not only authorized, but also recommended...

For a few days, the Brandons' tradition takes over Payerne. It is not uncommon to meet, at the bend of an alleyway, an unrecognizable being, sometimes frightening, sometimes magical. Every year, the people of Payerne compete with each other in daring and creativity in the creation of their costumes and floats and send a palette of colours to the delighted eyes of visitors who sometimes come from far away.

Wonder, surprise and happiness can be seen on the faces of young and old alike who savour these sweet moments of celebration and exaltation.

Window smearers, processions and disguised women are some of the highlights of the event full of music.
