The biggest festival on Cheung Chau Island is the annual bun festival in late April/early May. This festival lasts for three days, but it is only on day three that there is a parade, and it is this day which is a public holiday as well. Expect large crowds, but the festival itself is very entertaining. You can witness a children's parade (think little kids on top of floats) and the famous bun climb (participants claw their way up the side of a 60ft ‘bun tower’ and pluck off bags of plastic buns).
