I had a hard time coming up with todays, I might even be wrong on the year this is being celebrated in but am going for it anyway.

The Győr Spring Festival is part of the National Budapest Spring Festival in Hungry.  Like most spring festivals it is to celebrate the ending of winter and the coming of spring.  There is symbolic burning of winter and dancing around fires. 

The festival seems to center around artisitc and musical displays.
