Cheung Chau Bun Festival

Things to do: The Piu Sik Parade is one of the highlights of the Cheung Chau Bun Festival

Sleepy fishing village Cheung Chau wakes up and revels during the annual Cheung Chau Bun Festival, held on Buddha’s birthday every year – the fifth to the ninth days of the fourth lunar month. The festival is famous for sweet buns, with the event culminating with a Bun Scrambling Competition to climb 60-ft bamboo towers.
