Chung Yeung Festival

Public holiday today.

Hereabouts, it is traditional to head to the cemetery to sweep and clean one's family ancestors' graves.

It is also the moment to remember those who died in the defence of Hong Kong between 1941 and 1945 with an official ceremony at Hong Kong's City Hall Memorial Garden.
