WHERE!?! … District V., Szabadság Square – Budapest
WHEN!?! … 1 p.m. – 6 p.m.
A huge gathering is expected to take place at the Szabadság tér once again. The local families, friends and tourists are awaiting to be Green for a day and take to the streets of Budapest. It going to be a celebration of St Patrick’s Day. The parade will be led by a premier bagpipe group and a giant floating of St Patrick will be on the venue.
On St Patrick’s Day it is customary to wear shamrocks or what-so-ever color green clothing or accessories. So be sure wearing green to be at the “in” crowd. St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish.
Welcoming families to enjoy Celtic face painters, arts and craft activities, Irish Dancers and street entertainers, along the green-green grass at the Szabadság Square. The spirit of Irish folklore and legends such as CuChullainn, the Irish Wolf Hound appears on the coat of arms of early Irish Kings along with the famous Shamrock and Harp, so be a part of it!
Guinness, crunchy-munchy cracks with line up of 20 traditional bands will keep the party rolling on.
