The Surva Festival in Pernik is usually held in the second half of January. It features "Kukeri " - masked men with cowbells hanging from their belts, all moving in a special rhythmic step to scare away the evil spirits with their masks and the noise of their bells and drums. The costumes are made from furs, feathers or colorful rags. On the first day of new year they walk around the village wishing everyone health and prosperity and the people give them presents of food and wine.
