      Bénichon Festival – Switzerland (Fribourg Region)

      Bénichon is the name of the event celebrating the return of cowherds to the flat lowlands after more than 4 months in the alpine pastures. The cows are traditionally paraded through the towns.

      In the Middle Ages, Bénichon became part of the parish fair and anniversary celebrations honoring the patron of the church or of the descent of the cattle in a colorful procession. Today Bénichon has to a large degree lost its religious connotation and has become a popular folk festival with many culinary highlights – just like the “Chilbi” celebrated in the German speaking regions. Fribourg is predominately French speaking. (Wikipedia)

      Absolutely, and if you check out “how it is made” on line (look up Cow bells) you will see in detail how they were made!
