900,000 people flocked to the 25th Zurich Street Parade

900,000 people flocked to the world's largest techno parade on Saturday, celebrated with the motto "Zurich is unique".

The 25th Zurich Street Parade saw laser shows and festival goers in fancy dress dance to over 200 DJ's on stages around the lake.

Police say the event was mostly peaceful.

Emergency services treated around 690 people, 30% less than last year, mostly for cuts and scrapes, closely followed by excessive alcohol and drug use.
