Do not forget, that often running simultaneously with the Spring Festival is the annual Spring Market. This is very similar to the Christmas market, but since it is warmer, you will often find less hot wine and more of other stuff. This is something you for sure need to check out, and the spring market can be discovered at Vorosmarty Square.
