Réka Mészáros, managing director of Főnix Rendezvényszervező Közhasznú Nonprofit Ltd., said that the carnival parade will start on August 20 at 9 a.m. Dancers and baton twirlers, dressed in lavish costumes from all over the world, will accompany the breathtaking flower floats along Nagyerdei Boulevard (Nagyerdei körút).
Part of the week-long Debrecen Flower Carnival is free of charge, but there are program elements that require tickets.
There will be comfortable seating to view the entire parade in the grandstands and additional stands along the parade route. Tickets are on sale for the Schaeffler and Kölcsey Center stands on Rózsa Street.
An essential part of the festival is the display of plants and flowers.
Réka Mészáros said that the “Flowery City” project would be launched to make Debrecen “bloom.” Public squares, sculptures, trams, and tram stops will be decorated with flowers, while refreshment points will be created in busy areas.
The project aims to create a greener, urban oasis in the city center. They welcome applications from cafés, restaurants and shops to join in so that together they can offer a complete floral experience and an amazing, inviting atmosphere to visitors.
Information about the Debrecen Flower Carnival and tickets for the stands are available on the website.
