  1. Muslims people went to praying during the feasting ramadhan, and they're having fun in party bikinis… Oh God please forgive them 🙁

  2. They band the use of powder now. What planet have they been living on. Powder has been know to be very flammable for over 200 years., Stage shows are just turning into what the dumb asses DO . You want your entertainment from dumb asses you get what you pay for.

  3. Not only is powder prone to dust explosion, but it's also a hazard against any breathing creature. The organizers of this event should have known better. But what do you expect? Event's made in China after all. Though that was indeed colorful. What I didn't know is if that was supposed to be their cheap substitute for a fireworks display.

  4. Respect the nature , and the fire will respects you 😉 GOD is great 🙂 this is 0.01% of the hell , the judjement day  is near

  5. It was a "pride" celebration to celebrate a Supreme Court ruling in favor of homosexuality. The rainbow colored "dust" ignited. 2 Peter 3: 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his
    promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward,
    not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to
