Ever since that time, the people of Geneva have remembered and celebrated their day of victory. A large, torchbearing procession dressed in period costumes proceeds through the streets of the old city along both banks of the Rhone. Historic and legendary figures like Mère Royaume, armed with her pot, are always present. At several points along the traditional route, the procession stops and a herald on horseback reads the proclamation of victory over the invaders. Arriving in good spirits at St. Peter's Cathedral, the participants sing patriotic songs. The entire ceremony concludes with generalized merrymaking.
