Flower Carnival in Debrecen, Hungary

Dates: August 16-21
A friend of mine in Hungary sent this video link to me. It seems to be just a bit more people oriented than our similar Rose Bowl Parade, focused as it is around a sporting event. I'm not sure why this Hungarian approach appeals to me more. Perhaps it is the length of the event that makes the difference, perhaps it is the carnival type of production. Although our Mardi Gras is famous, it seems to be centered more around prurient and dark themes. This is a nice video about a great, proud, and historically enduring people.
