VICE’s Miscelánea Mexicana: The Most “Explosive” Festival in Mexico

Village in smoke and clouds

San Juan de la Vega is not your average village in Mexico. Every year, the Festival of San Juanito, a Robin Hood-like figure, calls for the smashing of homemade explosives with the strike of a hammer. It’s a spectacle that never ceases to fascinate us.

Check out the amazing video, produced as part of Vice’s “Miscelánea Mexicana,” and learn the powerful roots of this cultural tradition.
