Event Details

The 'Hungry Ghosts' festival is an important merit-making event for ethnic Chinese. Special food, flowers and candles are offered to ancestors’ altars to 'feed the ghosts' that are said to have been released from hell for the month. Relatives pay their respects and appease them with gifts of food with turtle cakes being the most popular offerings. The turtle symbolises longevity and by giving these cakes, the worshippers believe they will prolong their own lives.
