The 43rd Swiss Wine Festival brought large crowds to the Paul Ogle Riverfront Park beginning last Thursday; but a huge summer storm on Saturday night dampened the festival grounds as well as the spirits of attendees - causing several of the premier events to be delayed or canceled all together.
Vevay was the place to be on the weekend with the Swiss Wine Festival and Vevay High Alumni and class reunions. A lot of old friends got to visit again. The festival was great except for the rain and lightning. I think everyone found shelter but got pretty wet.
The Switzerland County High School junior varsity football team played hard last Friday night and kept the game close; but in the fourth quarter lightning caused the game to be called with Scottsburg leading 12-0.
