More than 1,500 masked well-wishers (koukeri), aged between two and 80 took part in the traditional fair on Saturday in Bulgaria's town of Simitli.

The fest was organized for the fifth year in a row by the local municipality. The event was held at the town's stadium.

Koukeri from Bulgaria's neighboring country Macedonia and people from the nearby village of Sushitsa joined the fair.

At this year's event the organizers gave a special award dedicated to one of the victims of a blast at Oranovo mine, Vassil Milanov, who was among the most colourful personalities to participate in the fest.
