There they make concurse for the best joke of the year and people being nominated. This festival is also to celebrate the day of that town. People dressed in national folcklore dresses of that region and singing and dansing tradition songs and dances from that region too. Have open market with BBQs and different swings and sntractions. Also food and drinks which are populiare for that part of the country. It is very interesting and the food very nice and teasty too. This is one of the first Spring festivals during the year.

Thank you for sharing some information about the culture and tradition of Gabrovo, Bulgaria regarding its April 1 festival. It sounds like a beautiful, fun place to visit. I didn't know that April Fools day was such a big tradition in other parts of the world. Perhaps I should do some research on it and find out where the tradition started. I just never gave it much thought. You have inspired me to do so. I enjoyed your story.
