Cheung Chau’s annual Bun Scrambling Competition - having been halted for three years due to Covid - is finally back, the government announced on Friday.
With the Bun Carnival in Cheung Chau coming soon, the government said in a statement today that the Bun Scrambling Final, which is the exciting finale of the event, will be held at the soccer pitch of Pak Tai Temple Playground on Cheung Chau in the night on May 26.
People aged 18 or above are welcome to participate in the event by submitting applications from Monday (February 27) to March 20.
The maximum number of entrants for the Bun Scrambling Competition is 200. If the applications received exceed the quota, places will be allocated by ballot. Applicants who live, work or study on Cheung Chau will have priority in the ballot, according to the government statement.
Besides the Bun Scrambling Competition, this year's Bun Carnival will also feature a wide array of activities, including the Student Coloring and Drawing Competitions and the Climbing Carnival.
At the Climbing Carnival to be held on May 14, there will be bun tower climbing relay competitions, the bun tower climbing fun day, game stalls, handicrafts, and variety shows.
A Wishing Bun Tower will also be set up, and winning works of the Student Coloring and Drawing Competitions will be displayed. Members of the public are welcome to join the carnival on the spot.
