Pagentry at the castle

'Pagentry' at the castle

Except it was really sort of silly. When we were hiking up the very steep and long hill to get to the castle (should have taken the horse-drawn cart for sure), I heard what I knew was Turkish music. Turns out there were belly dancers (!) performing, prior to what we thought would be a re-enactment of the battle between the Ottomans and the Hungarians at the castle. However, after the firing (by accident?) of one cannon, it moved on to a sort of fashion show of the participants. Honestly, if this is what they do routinely at the castle, I would skip it (and the climb) and head directly for the village itself.
