Hong Kong Cultural Celebration – Cheung Chau Bun Festival 2015
This festival has over 100 years of history
This year, huge crowd of travelers had descended upon this tiny island celebrating this wonderful mixture of Chinese customs, food, music, sport and colourful ceremonial parade that makes this festival one of the Hong Kong most tourist attractions.
In the colourful ‘Piu Sik’ (Floating Colours) Parade, one of the extraordinary highlights of the day, children dressed in the guises of traditional deities and modern celebrities, balance on poles and accompanied by gongs and lion dancers, appearing to float above the crowds in a carnival-like procession.
The hand-made Lucky Bun is a must-to-buy item for every traveler. The bun is stamped with red Chinese characters for peace and stability, and made of flour, sugar and water with one of three fillings (sesame, lotus and red bean).
