Parbeszed calls for scrapping costly fireworks display in Budapest

Opposition Parbeszed has called for cancelling the traditional fireworks display closing out the August 20 national holiday celebrations in Budapest, the party's advisor on EU affairs said on Monday.

“Fireworks displays are going out of fashion in many places in the world because they not only cost a lot, but release material that pollute the air,” Benedek Javor told an online press conference.

He proposed replacing the fireworks display with drone and laser shows, arguing that those were a lot cheaper and more environment friendly.
