June 2007 sees the 10th annual Absinthe Festival in Boveresse, Val-de-Travers, the birthplace of absinthe. If you haven't booked your accommodation yet, you may have problems unless you are willing to sleep on a distillery floor, or simply find a bar to drink the night away!
Here's a historic photo of the harvest in the Val-de-Travers many years ago:
Here's a photo from a recent festival (clue: the sun is shining)
and finally here's a photo of some celebrities from the world of absinthe at the Clandestine distillery as they take a few minutes out to watch Claude-Alain Bugnon at work.
No prizes are on offer, but if anyone wants to provide a caption for this photo, please go ahead and comment!
For further details of the June event, see the festival site.
Updated on June 13th: the timetable for the event.
