Cancel Aug 20 Fireworks in Budapest Proposes Párbeszéd Party
Opposition Párbeszéd has proposes cancelling this year’s fireworks display closing out the August 20 national holiday celebrations in Budapest, the party’s spokesman said.

“The cost of the fireworks is being kept secret, but what we do know is that last year’s display cost at least 12 billion forints (EUR 30m),” Richárd Barabás told an online press conference.

He said the government should not spend money “on silly things” in the current situation when “it has made the lives of 400,000 small business taxpayers difficult” and people across the board were affected by high inflation and rising energy prices.
