Most stores were closed in Budapest over Easter weekend, but instead I found the Easter market at Vörösmarty Tér. The festival welcomed spring time with egg painting and stands selling embroidered lace, hand painted porcelain, Victorian-era costumes, wooden jewelry boxes, paprika, goulash, sausages, jams, and strudel, my personal favorite.

At one end of the festival, students from throughout Hungary performed traditional folk dances with their school groups. The music was fast and lively and it was fun watching proud parents take pictures from the audience. I was particularly impressed by the costumes.
