What can be more fun, a lively village festival, folksy music, some rustic food and beverages and of course launching 55 gallon drums skyward.
Apparently there`s a bit of science behind all of this:
" If you mix calcium carbide and water, it produces acetylene. Acetylene is extremely flammable and can launch 55-gallon drums into the air when ignited."
DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME, OR INDOORS! EVER!
