Watch live as people gather in Hong Kong for the Bun Festival
People in Hong Kong gather for the Bun Festival, joining a midnight climbing competition where participants scramble up towers of buns more than ten metres high – where the person gets the most buns, of the greatest value, wins.
The origin of the festival is a tale of a plague that hit Cheung Chau island centuries ago, and the inhabitants developed rituals to appease the gods and overcome the plague. The festival returns after being cancelled the past three years due to the COVID pandemic.
