In this post I want to call your attention to a very famous event around Hajduszoboszlo in August:
The week of flowers - Flower Carnival in Debrecen 2011
The town of Debrecen is only a half-an-hour-drive from Hajduszoboszlo.If you are having your holiday between 15th and 21th August don't miss the chance to visit this popular parade.
The Flower Carnival has a history of over one hundred years. In 1900 the Debreczen Civil Bicycle Association organised a bicycle competition the highlight of which was a large-scale flower corso. Since 1966 the event has taken place yearly. Now the carnival is a spectacular event with beautiful flower cars and dance groups coming from Debrecen, her sister cities and other countries as well.
Apart from the parade of the flower compositions and performers there will be lots to see including:
Flower arrangement competition, Clean Yard - Tidy House – Award Ceremony, Debrecen Youth Orchestra and Majorette Group, Childen’s programmes, Folk dance with 650 dancers, Carnival hair-show, Knights’ tournament, Festival Garden, Cuban salsa show,Charity Noodle Festival for the Feeding Kids Foundation, Raising the national flag with military saluting, Bike marching, Firework, Street party, Photo exhibition, Cactus exhibition and fair, Car and Motorshow, Hot Air Balloon Competition etc.
