17th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Fireworks Festival

Every March in Tultepec, Mexico, a party is held in which the inhabitants burn hundreds of fireworks. The population celebrates by jumping between the rockets. For them, risking possible burns is a matter of pride.

Editor's Note: This celebration concludes with the burning of paper-mache bulls filled with fireworks.
