Thumbnail for 579The sailing contest begins Thursday morning – so if you don’t want to miss the breathtaking sight of 600 yachts starting their run, then make sure to be on the beach at 9 am. After the excitement you can enjoy a glass of champagne at our exhibitors, then have some delicious food products from the producers. After lunch let’s start tasting seriously! Later you can go on with sweets or some craft beers. Meanwhile listen to the numerous street bands around the tables. When the sun sets, stage programs begin. Don’t forget to get something in your glass before sitting down to watch football or a great concert. At night DJ provides cool atmosphere – and it’s time for cocktails and the famous Hungarian fruit spirit called ‘pálinka’.
