Chestnut festival – swissinfo

An increasingly popular tourist event, the two-day chestnut festival in Fully, canton Valais, attracts an estimated 40,000 visitors to a small town with just 6,000 residents. Chestnuts are the hot attraction, of course, but does the festival reveal deeper insights into the region’s culture? Or is it just a healthy opportunity to gobble up large amounts of roasted chestnuts? (Ed Harris, swissinfo.ch)
