People in El Salvador celebrate a festival. It happens every year. It is quite dangerous.

People throw fireballs at the festival. The festival honours a big volcanic eruption. It happened in 1922.

The festival is not new. However, there are still no rules. People can get hurt.

Difficult words: honour (show respect), volcanic (of a volcano – a mountain which can explode), eruption (explosion).
