The Fire Festival was held on the evening of August 18th and despite the threat of rain, the skies cleared over Nalerigu and the events continued unhindered. The biggest challenge was the lack of power for over 15 hours that night and therefore the streetlights were off, posing a safety hazard for the gathered crowds.

Here is a video compilation of the events at the NaYiri Palace followed by a gallery of images by photographer William Haun.
