Yambol's Memorial To Bulgaria's Independence

Yambol's Memorial To Bulgaria's Independence
Every year on the 3rd March Bulgarians celebrates their independence and liberation from the Ottoman Rule. Last Tuesday was that day and 130 years years free of the yoke. The memorial picture here was centre stage when the formal celebrations took place in Yambol's Town Park. It was of course another public holiday and reason to celebrate and party on - And we all did.

We in the U.S. celebrate with fireworks at night. Is it the same way in Bulgaria?
