Saturday is the so-called "day of reflection" ahead of Sunday's mayor election in Bulgaria's third-largest city of Varna.
The Varna rallies triggered Bulgaria's January and Feburary 2013 protests that led to the resignation of then-PM Boyko Borisov and calling of early elections May 12.
They also tragically included a number of fatal self-immolations, many of them due to poverty and personal distress.
9 candidates are running in Sunday's vote.
They include former ruling GERB party candidate Ivan Portnih and local businessman Veselin Mareshki.
