Hong Kong Tuen Ng Festival Holiday
Tuen Ng Festival is a traditional festival of China, which is celebrated each year in the Mainland, as well as, in Hong Kong. The day is a celebration with different types of festivities. It includes savouring delicious rice dumplings and boat racing events in Hong Kong. The name of this traditional festival is basically a Cantonese word. Many people also call it as the Duanwu Festival or Dragon Boat Festival. Rowers and revellers come together in Hong Kong’s waterways in the morning. It is to enjoy the events and fun on this day. Apart from rowing rituals, the day also features people in fancy dress and families coming together. This festival has derived its name from an event called the Bun Scrambling Competition. Replicas of buns are stuck to a mammoth bamboo tower. Participants climb this tower to gather lucky buns- the more the better.
