Tultepec is the mexican municipality with the largest community of pyrotechnicians in Mexico. Half of the 140,000 inhabitants earn some money from activities related to fireworks fabrication. Last December the community attracted international attention due to the explosion of the fireworks market. However, tragedy is not town's trademark but the people that work hard to make a living from fireworks fabrication. They keep alive the artistic tradition of pyrotechnics in Mexico no matter the obstacles the find in their way.
