20th August 2016. - 47th Program of Flower Carnival in Debrecen
Debrecen organizes the Flower Carnival since 1966 which by today has grown into one of the most popular festivals not only of the city but of Hungary as well. The internationally acknowledged Flower Carnival is held on 20 August every year, a national holiday when Hungarians celebrate the foundation of the Hungarian State.
The history of the Flower Carnival dates back to the beginning of the last century: in September 1900 the Debreczen Civil Bicycle Association organised a bicycle competition on the association’s new field. The highlight of the competition – reported the newspaper of the age – was a large-scale flower corso.
