Budapest Carnival To Celebrate Visegrád Group Foundation, 11 February
A day-long carnival will be held in Budapest on Sunday, 11 February to celebrate the foundation of the Visegrád Group 27 years ago, a spokesman for the event said on Thursday.

The carnival, to take place in and around the Várkert Bazaar near the Danube, will present programmes representing the four member countries, Miklós Csorba told public news channel M1.

It will offer folk, pop and world music concerts, gastronomy shows, children programmes and a light show and will end with a firework show, he said.
