One of our favorite events of the year is the celebration of the end of the summer season for the Cheese Cowboys and their prized Hérens cows. For the weeks leading up to the end of September, the sound of bells fills the air, and the herds come down from the high Alpages. It culminates on the last weekend of September, with a parade through the villages and the Fête de Raclette.
