Surva is one of the many festivals celebrated in Bulgaria throughout the year.
Known as the Spring festival, the annual event is held for three days in the town of Pernik. The festival is the biggest of its kind in Bulgaria which is meant to encourage good harvests, health, fertility and happiness for the year to come. Thousands of men are clad in colorful and bizarre costumes, while wearing scary masks. They dance and shake loud cow-bells in the hope of driving out the bad spirits.
