Although this event is based on pagan beliefs and rituals, the costumes are humoristic and sarcastic, reflecting the contemporary trends and problems in the society. The costumes of the participants called "Vasilicari" are designed properly and realisticly, with attention on every small detail, making the most of them look really scary and controversial.

The area near the springs is recently developed into a small park with picnic areas.
