Onlookers didn't let Sunday's cold and wet weather keep them from the Poya festival in Estavannens in canton Fribourg. There they cheered on the cattle headed to pasture for the summer.
The event features elaborately decorated cattle and traditional Swiss dress. Although it looks old-fashioned, this was only the seventh time that the festival was held. The custom, however, is much older, and the subject is a common theme in local folk art.
