More than 850 million Forints were spent on new equipment and to reconstruct the central venues of the Busójárás at Mohács.
The Busójárás at Mohács has been a part of UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 2009. It’s a six-day carnival marking and celebrating the end of winter, which attracts great crowds to the Mohács area and the local municipality claimed, the reconstruction of the carnival’s main venues such as Deák Square, the Hősök Park and the Busó Garden, as well as the renewing of the infrastructure has become crucial, turizmus.com reported.
Deák Square that serves as a catering point has been rebuilt into a proper event venue.
The square has got a 400 m2 pool which is transformed into the auditorium space during festivities. The axis of the square has become the space for sellers, providing them with electricity, water and wastewater-connection.
Almost 10,000 m2 of the surface of the areas have been paved, and promenades have been built with a lot of greenery planted. The public lighting has been modernised and the area has got new street furniture. Deák Square and Hősök Park can now function as a public park throughout the year.
The park’s artworks have been restored and transferred to new locations.
Hungarian sculptor Trischler Ferenc’s new work was installed on the eastern side of the square.
Technical developments have been implemented and an interactive exhibition was established to meet today’s demands. Also, new equipment was purchased; a 40 m2 LED-wall, new stage with adjustable roof, modern sound and lighting equipment, more than 100 craft tents, and 150 beer table and bench sets.
According to the municipality of Mohács, the developments fit in their programme of renewing public spaces. The Szepessy Park with 2.5 hectares of green area that was opened last year, was also part of this programme.
