Now this has become what seems to be a national event. It was hard to tell who was who, as many different cultures got together to go on a parade through the city, led by two very tall men on stilts and driven by the glorious sound of bag pipers, with the lovely big Irish dogs in pursuit.
It all ended up at downtown Instant club, where parade participants enjoyed some tasty food, dancing and last but not least a drop of the dark stuff, which went down a treat, just as the rest of the day did.
It’s always a fab day in Hungary when the capital city goes green, all thanks to Irish expats in Budapest.
