Rose Festival in Kazanlak

We are returning to Sofia for the month of June and would love to attend the Rose Festival in Kazanlak or a nearby town. We are not interested in the standard tourist day tour. We were thinking of hiring a private car with English speaking driver but we are only planning on going for one day we want to pick the correct day. We want to experience the event. Would the Sunday parade and the rose picking ritual in Kazanlak be the best choice or would something smaller be less touristy? We don't speak any Bulgarian so finding detailed info on line that is not geared to a tourist has been a challenge . Is there anyone who has attended one of these events that can offer some advice? Thank you. Karen & Randy

It would be a good option for you! Yet, if you have more time, go to Sandanski, the area there it's really beautiful! It's south from Sofia
