This guy is up to mischief

Busójárás is the Mohacs event that signals (or creates?) the end of winter to make way for the coming of spring. It is marked by parades of Busó, large masked creatures, sometimes even wielding weapons who scare off winter.

More parading Busó

And yet more...

Busó children

Night at the Roxbury anyone?

This Busó took a little inspiration from Guy Fawkes

Little Boy Busó come blow your horn...

Silly busó with donut horns

Cel-e-brate good times, c'mon!

Burning man, winter edition

Die, winter, die!

Hardcore busó

Happy dancing busó

Party time!

The Busó are happy

Mischief managed.
