Thousands Bulgarians celebrate July morning
Thousands of Bulgarians flocked to the Black Sea coast and Vitosha Mountain, close to the capital Sofia, the night before July 1 to see the sunrise and celebrate a unique holiday. The "July Morning" event, dedicated to the famous eponymous song by Uriah Heep, tradition dates back to the hippie period in the 1970s and 1980s and originated as a protest against the restrictions of the communist regime. The holiday is still quite popular among Bulgarians, but traditionally takes place across the seaside. John Lawton delighted thousands of Bulgarian fans by performing "July Morning" at the Kamen Bryag village near Varna exactly at dawn (5:33 am local time). Lawton took part in the event for the seventh time and was accompanied by popular Bulgarian rock band B.T.R. It was at Kamen Bryag where the tradition started, but it is celebrated all across the seaside now, including near the cities of Varna, Burgas and Sozopol.
