Yanshui Beehive Firecrackers Festival in southern Taiwan is rather unusual because fireworks are actually launched into the crowd! You’ll need a special helmet, clothes, and gloves for safety as firecrackers rain down all around you. This is a truly thrilling and exciting experience for those brave enough to participate. This ceremony lasts all night with thousands of people attending. Historically, this festival originates in the late 1800's when a deadly cholera outbreak plagued the city and fireworks were used to call for help.
