Thousands of people gathered in the Mexican city Tultepec on Tuesday to celebrate the annual National Pyrotechnic Festival.
Spectators marked the festival, held for San John of God, the patron saint of fireworks makers, by setting off a rip-roaring display. The celebrations included the burning of the ‘toritos’, bull-shaped frames carrying fireworks that run rampant among people.
Tultepec, an urban municipality of about 130,000 people, is known as Mexico’s ‘pyrotechnics capital’ whose economy is mainly based on the production of hand-made fireworks.
SOT, Liliana, housewife (Spanish): “Well, this has been a tradition for years. It is very common to see huge bulls full of pyrotechnics. People get together, complete families, it is very nice. It is a familiar atmosphere that takes place every year. Last year, due to the pandemic, it was not possible, but now the atmosphere is very good.”
Ximena, student (Spanish): “It is very beautiful to share this with the people who produce the pyrotechnics.”
Liliana, housewife (Spanish): “Also, people come from many countries. People from all over the world come to this specific festivity of the burning of the bulls. That is very nice.”
