Día de los muertos, the Mexican "Day of the Dead" is not a sad thing, but a colourful celebration. According to ancient Mexican beliefs, the dead return once a year to celebrate with the living. Spooky? Not really, more like a friendly reunion. And certainly a good excuse to snack on skull-shaped candies and pan de muerto or to decorate your home with colourful flowers garlands.
With 270 (living) participants, Golden Leaves Con is the biggest furry convention in the alpine region. Located in the scenic Hasli valley at more than 1000 meters of altitude, it boasts some truly breath-taking vistas as well as plenty of things to do for fursuiters and for everyone else. Participate in the dance contest or shake your tail at our Fur Dance. Or just chill in the heated outdoor pool or sit by the campfire. Of course, there's a Dealer's Den too to buy or sell artwork and crafts.
Golden Leaves Con 10 will take place 30th October to 3rd November (Wednesday to Sunday). The con fee of 245 Swiss Franks (C'est la Vie Hostel) or 375 Swiss Franks (Panorama Hotel) includes three meals a day, free soda and free cocktails on one night.
