Hong Kong locals scaled a bun-laden tower to collect the traditional desserts on Sunday. That is a part of celebrations to mark the end of the Cheung Chau bun festival. The festival takes place every year on Hong Kong's Cheung Chau island and coincides with the local celebration of Buddha's Birthday. the bravest participants scaled the 60 feet tower made of buns, with the person picking the bun at the top of the tower blessing their family with luck. Thousands of Hong Kong residents and tourists flocked to the tiny island on the final day of the celebrations to watch a "floating colours" parade where children dressed up as gods and goddesses and marched the island's streets.
