Swiss Days in Midway offers a wide variety of handmade items, antiques, fine art, and great Swiss food. Between 80,000 to 100,000 people descended on Midway this weekend to relish Swiss Days, a tradition here since the 1940s.

The occasional dirndl, flower hair wreath and alpine hat could be seen among the crowds, but strollers, flip-flops and sunblock ruled the town square. Residents say that even with the massive crowds, the two-day event is really about a tight-knit community that comes together in the name of heritage and showing neighboring cities a good time. About 2,000 people from Midway and surrounding towns volunteer their time to make the event a reality. Youth play a big role by wiping down tables, taking out the trash and refilling water jugs. LDS Church members play a big role, she said, but at the end of the day it's a community-wide effort to make the festival full of music and Swiss cheese a reality.

Organized by the Midway Boosters, the event was home to 190 different booth vendors this year — all of which had to earn a plot in the town square through a jury selection. Headbands, housewares, artwork and crafts were available, as were Swiss tacos, ham and Swiss cheese sandwiches and scones the size of Frisbees.
