The Mexico state municipality of Tultepec is the fireworks center of the country (with the majority of it’s citizens making their living by either making or selling fireworks), and they prove it with with their beautiful castillo displays. But the real winner is their National Pyrotechnics Fair, which features massive fireworks laden bulls that dance down the street in all their pyrotechnic glory.  Read the extended for a video of the altogether insane festivities.

If the name of Tultepec is familiar to you, you might be remembering the massive explosion there back in September of 2005, which destroyed hundreds of stands in the famed San Pablito Market.

    As respectful as I am of tradition, in the case of dancing around while massive bulls shoot off searing fireworks I’m gonna have to consider that less than intelligent behavior, regardless of how cool the resulting video may be.

    Agreed.  They are having searing balls of fire tossed upon them.  How can you even enjoy it?  Look at them, they have to keep their heads down and covered, you don’t even get to see anything.

    that would be so freaking easy to enjoy… didn’t any of you ever have roman candel or bottlerocket fights? it’s one of those things you just shut your brain up and get at it.
