Cheungchau Bun Festival May10

"Said to be a hundred years history, every year in May all people on the island must kept vegetarian diet for three days, at the last day the procession held. When midnight came hundreds young men hurried up to the three bun towers, torn off all the buns, put them in bag or spread them over the crowd. This activity of bun-snatching was ceased after an accident in 1978, the bamboo structure of the bun tower bent in the middle and half fall. The modern style bun-snatching came back at 2005, it changed to mountaineering equipped climbers and steel structure tower. The festival itself is an combination of praying to gods, ganged together, and to navigate the lost spirits."
