Young people participate a public water fight flashmob in downtown Budapest, Hungary on June 25, 2016.

Last weekend we had Flydogs Extreme Distance dog frisbee European Championships held in Budapest. It is a sport that grants mutual fun for both dog and owner as well and an oblivious play but it also entertains the audience as well.
