CNN (CNN) - Villagers in China performed a dragon dance with molten iron fireworks.

The molten iron was heated to more than 1,000 degree Celsius before being launched into the air by twenty artists.

Villagers then performed the dance wearing just shorts and cloth hats to protect them.

Traditionally, the performance is held to pray for a good harvest.
