Photographer Thomas Prior traveled to Mexico in March, and during his time there he snapped some photos (spotted via Fubiz) of the residents of Tultepec, a town north of Mexico City, during the National Pyrotechnic Festival. More than 100,000 people gathered to watch the explosive displays in the town that produces the majority of Mexico’s fireworks. It puts our Fourth of July celebrations to shame, really, although it’s probably best to avoid this sort of thing when we get together to watch stuff blow up two weeks from now. It looks as dangerous as it is awesome.
