Surva Festival in Bulgaria
On the days of the holiday, those who wish can admire the performances of folk groups, visit exhibitions of paintings and photographs (dedicated to the symbol of the holiday, of course), as well as concerts and a festive parade. For aspiring performers of songs and dances, the Rose Festival is a long-awaited occasion to take the stage for the first time.
The culmination of the holiday is a competition in which the most beautiful girl is chosen and the title of Queen of the Rose is awarded to her. As part of the competition, a rose parade is held annually - a truly unforgettable sight. Thousands of people pass through the streets of the city, dressed in clothes of the era of Ancient Greece and Rome, and at this time music sounds, and rose petals are falling from the sky on the heads of the parade.
