It is also a 4-days event and over these days, the community holds exploring aspects of Hungarian history, language, lectures of famous figures e.g. László József Bíró, inventor of the “Biró” pen. Furthermore, showing how the culture tradition is kept thousands of kilometers Downunder, is a good example of the 31-year-old man from Békéscsaba who teach the village folk dances from the age of five.
