The Beehives of Yenshui ('76 Pyro)

By global standards, southern Taiwan has few truly exceptional geographical or cultural features. However, it does boast what is probably the most extreme and exciting pyrotechnics event in the world: The Yenshui Fireworks Festival, also known as the Beehive Rockets Festival...

'76 Pyro bills itself as "a magazine for people who love fireworks." Several months ago they contacted the people who first published this article, asking for reprint rights. The publishers asked my permission. I gave it, and promptly forgot all about it until the magazines arrived a few days ago. The photo here was taken by Richard Matheson.
