Bulgarians dance in icy waters on Epiphany Day

The dancers performed a variety of the traditional Horo group dance, forming a ring around drum and pipe players in the icy waters.

Hundreds of spectators cheered to those dancing and playing music in the river.

Epiphany marks the day Christians commemorate what the Bible says was the arrival of the three wise men, or magi, in Bethlehem following Jesus' birth.
