Many of my female friends don’t like the masculine folk tradition of Easter waterings that is mandatory part of the festive in Hungary. Some straight consider it to be harrassment – including my photos of it. I think it is important to tell on Easter Monday I too get watered – I hope not to wither without this celebrartion this year!

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

Just like every year there was a public water fight in central Budapest on one of the warmest days of summer. People had a chance to splash into water and cool off in a way rarely available to anyone. Events like this should be more common for the enjoyment of the participants, viewers and of course for us photographers too.
