Yanshui's Beehive Rockets 鹽水蜂炮

Guess how many rockets are here at this single station?
Hundreds of thousands.
Over the entire festival, millions of bottle rockets are fired.


My left thigh two days after the festival. Same leg that got hit at the Chen Yunlin protest years ago. Welts and bruises are OK. I'm glad I still have my eyes and can see out of them.

More on the origin of the festival later.
