Carnival in Macedonia

A man pretends playing on a false piano as disguised revelers take part in a carnival procession through south-western Macedonia's village of Vevchani, on January 13, 2013. The Vevchani carnival is 1,400 years old and is held every year on the eve of the feast of Saint Basil ( January 14), which also marks the beginning of the New Year according to the Julian calendar, observed by the Macedonian Orthodox Church.
