This is 'Surva' aka the International Festival of the Masquerade Games, held every year in Pernik. It's based on folklore traditions about driving away evil and preparing for the return of life in the springtime. The origins are supposedly in pre-Christian beliefs. Local groups from different towns and villages across Bulgaria take part as do groups from other parts of the Balkans. These days it's a cultural festival, though it is still held on the traditional dates for the rituals. I got to see it in 2019 but unfortunately it fell victim to COVID in 2020 and 2021 before starting up again this year. You can read more about it here.What was this all about? I guess something religious?
