Count Me In: Video Of Taiwan Fireworks Festival Where All The Fireworks Are Shot At The Spectators

February 20, 2014


This is a worthwhile video captured by reader Alex of the Fireworks Festival that takes place every year in Tainan City, Taiwan, on the fifteenth day of the Chinese New Year. The festival celebrates the end of a cholera epidemic that happened over a century ago. The fireworks consist of giant metal lattice "beehives" filled with bottle rockets that are shot into the crowd to ward off evil plague spirits and bring good luck to the people in their paths. Sounds like my kind of party. Spectators are encouraged to wear helmets with visors, as well as long sleeves and pants, but I have every intention of attending next year's in nothing but swim goggles and a Speedo. I don't need clothes getting in between me and all that good luck.

Keep going for the video, it's worth a watch.

Thanks Alex, now let's tape Roman candles to ourselves and film us running at each other playing chicken.
