This is a picture of the Tin Hau Festival
The Lantern Festival takes place in January or February. Lanterns are lit in homes, restaurants and temples. The secular Hong Kong Food Festival, billed as Asia's premier culinary event, is usually held in March. The Tin Hau Festival is a Taoist festival falling around late April. Junks are decorated and sail in long rows to Tin Hau temples to pray for clear skies and good fishing.
