bun festival, cheung chau, hong kong

every year on buddha's birthday,
people gather to celebrate.
in cheung chau a festival of buns is held,
good health and protection it commemorates.

make buns, sell buns, race for buns, eat buns,
that is what the locals would have you do.
join in their party and local culture,
while admiring bun towers made from bamboo.
