Participants of the Yanshui Beehive Fireworks Festival, with their backs to the fireworks, as the large cart of fireworks go off on February 26, 2021 in Tainan, Taiwan. The Yanshui Beehive Fireworks Festival is an annual tradition held on the 15th day after the beginning of the Lunar New Year in Tainan City for over 130 years. Located in Yanshui District, it is regarded as one of the most dangerous fireworks festivals in the world. Participants wear motorcycle helmets, fire-retardant clothing and thick gloves, with hundreds of thousands of firecrackers going off at the same time. According to Taiwan's Tourism Bureau, the 'beehive fireworks' festival started in 1885 as a request to the gods to spare the area from a cholera outbreak that was making its way through the villages. Future generations followed this tradition. It is believed that the “baptism of fireworks” gets rid of calamities while bringing good fortune in the new lunar year.
