Pumpkin Festivals and Animated Films

October 01, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

Autumn is definitely here! I don’t know about you, but I personally dread this time of the year:  October and November is when everything starts turning grey, the days get shorter, and there is no snow in the mountains yet. Luckily, autumn means it’s pumpkin time! Whether you’re looking to carve them or eat them, why not check out some pumpkin patches?   This weekend you’ll be able to taste 100 different varieties of squash at 1001 courges in Bavois in Vaud! (It’s possible to get there by train via Renens). For something closer, head to Corsier, just outside of Geneva (Bus G with the TPG). There is a small village fest, in the schoolyard, and you can buy pumpkins there. If the weather is bad what about relaxing and watching a film? Whether you go to the cinema or stay at home, they’re always nice to watch! Well, guess what? There is a great International animated film festival that actually starts this Saturday. The program of Animatou on Sunday will have a pixilation workshop, movies for kids, a film premiere with the Director in attendance  (Le Jour des Corneilles) and an Andreas Hykade’s retropective. Check out the program to see the […]
