It took place in Zebegeny, a little country village along the Danube river, across from the castle of Visegrad, near the Slovakian border.
There were beautiful handicrafts being made right there on site - everything from elaborately carved pumpkins to woven baskets to wooden instruments were being created before our eyes. There was even a full-sized traditional loom set up and working in the town square.
There were plenty of activities for the kids - carving pumpkins, making kites and jewellry, clay, facepainting ... and traditional basket carousel swings, a couple of trampolines and a bouncy play area for the little ones, which were a big hit with our kids (and gave me three 6-minute windows of shopping time! haha).
We ate goulash soup and bread for lunch, followed by the most wonderful Hungarian cuisine of all - kurtoskalacs (a tube of dough cooked on a spit over a fire and coated with sugar and cinnamon ... mmmm).
It was a lovely family day outdoors on a beautiful Fall day that certainly felt more like summer.
Then it was off home for a quick change and a friend's birthday party. (I just have to post a picture here of Princess Pea leaving for the party - she was so proud of how fancy she looked!)
