    Da Jiu Festival taken place once in every 60 years in the Sheung Shui community. During the festival, the "Ghost King Parade" will be held. Dozens of the male village dwellers bring the 20 feet high paper-made Ghost King to run around the village.

    The parade is finished by the ritual of burning the Ghost King to send him back to the underworld.

    Impressive series of photos of a very interesting festival in your part of the world, which is a faraway land for me. Very nice to see - I love the overall golden tones in your pics here.
