The Poklade (busó festivities) is a tradition of the sokac ethnic group in Hungary, held in Mohács. It is a UNESCO cultural heritage for many years now. Men (adults and children as well) are dressed as “busó”, wearing wooden horned masks and wool cloaks scaring the winter away. They and their companions, the jankele are visiting houses, marching in the streets, have fun, do mishieves, entertain and scare people and eventually light a huge bonfire on the last night. More info about this tradition here.
I had the chance to visit Mohács and the events and was the guest of locals and thus had the chance to look a bit beneath the surface, see a bit more than usually tourists or visitors do. Here is a selection of images showing how I saw it:
