Fireworks on the 14th/14日の花火/元宵節的鞭炮


I went to a festival a couple of weeks back on the fourteenth day of the lunar new year.  The festival consists of alternating shows of fireworks and firecrackers.  The firecrackers though, are fired right into the watching crowds.  At times it was like a battlefield, with smoke everywhere.  Admittedly though, I went to Luermen.  The truly crazy festival is in Yanshui.  It's the same idea (fire firecrackers at people) but taken to a whole different level from what I hear.  I think I'll pass on that.
