Photos: Fire cracker rickshaw

When I clicked the picture, I had no idea what this was. It looked like the rickshaws found in the streets in India. Of course, our local rickshaw is a basic one when compared to this contraption. During the parade, I realized what it was. Firecrackers were loaded on to this rickshaw. A person rides it and another person walks besides it. The person walking, picks up the firecrackers and lights it. It was a nice sight.

The photo was taken when the rickshaw was parked in front of Hotel de Ville. A kid was playing with it.
