Festival of the dead, part 4: Out with a Bang

The weekend festivities continue on Saturday, but so does the threat of rain.  Yet this does not keep away the citizens of Nakagawa, who are eager to dance and enjoy the festival.

Even a sudden, heavy downpour, which sends the people scrambling for the nearest tent, does not dampen the mood.  In fact, the more than 50,000 fireworks that were set off for the attendees somehow seemed even more beautiful reflected on the wet ground and the outsides of glistening umbrellas.
