Kiev Fire Festival 2011

The fifth Kiev Fire Festival, which takes place over two days in the Ukraine, sees the world's best flame throwers and pyrotechnic experts gather in the city for thrilling displays. The first festival took place in 2007 and was held in the center of Kiev with an audience of around 2,000 spectators. In addition to the fire show, men and women performed acrobatics, and showed off arts and theater performances. The event culminates with a spectacular parade which organizers hope will 'give life' to a new genre of street art.
