Children wearing masks parade during “Bele Poklade” carnival
celebrations in the village of Lozovik, some 100 km (62 miles) south of
the capital Belgrade, on March 10, 2019. “Bele Poklade” has its roots
in old pagan customs and is marked annually seven weeks before Easter.
Children walk through the village to collect eggs, and at the end jump
over a fire to banish evil demons.
