The folklore games of the Survakar and Kukeri have deep pagan roots and are perceived as a blessing for health and fertility. Participants wear a variety of masks, most often dressed in furs and bells. The groups perform the rituals of “wedding” or “sowing”, performing complex dance movements with a lot of noise from loud bells, which is considered to symbolically banish evil and give a new beginning.
