Fire-Walking Festival Sets China Aflame

How did I miss the coverage of “fire walking” in China? It recently took place at Qianming Village in Jinyun County. The “fire walking” is a traditional activity in the village. Performers are barefoot on the charcoal fire and “agitate” the fire during the performance. Fire-walking was a New Age fad in the U.S. in the mid-80s, and is spoofed in the Bette Midler/Nick Nolte movie, “Down and Out In Beverly Hills.”
