Picnic weekend on Szabadság-híd starts tomorrow
Szabadság-híd (Freedom Bridge) in Budapest will be closed to traffic for all four weekends of July, and open only for pedestrians.
The program has been organized every year since 2016.
The project, which is an urban experiment in public space development, will have various programs including concerts, spontaneous gatherings, performances, and BBQs, the Facebook site of the event reported. Since there will be no shops or food trucks at the event, visitors will not be able to buy anything.
They should bring own food, beverages and music, the organizers say. During the weekends, trams 47, 48 and 49 will be replaced by buses.
SUPPORT THE BUDAPEST BUSINESS JOURNAL
Producing journalism that is worthy of the name is a costly business. For 27 years, the publishers, editors and reporters of the Budapest Business Journal have striven to bring you business news that works, information that you can trust, that is factual, accurate and presented without fear or favor.
Newspaper organizations across the globe have struggled to find a business model that allows them to continue to excel, without compromising their ability to perform. Most recently, some have experimented with the idea of involving their most important stakeholders, their readers.
