Chung Yeung Festival, also known as Autumn Remembrance, takes place on the ninth day of the ninth month of the Chinese lunar calendar. The festival is a day to respect and remember ancestors, a practice widely valued by the Chinese.
The practice of ancestor worship is based on three beliefs:
- That a person’s good or bad fortune is influenced by the souls of his or her ancestors
- That all departed ancestors have the same material needs they had when alive
- That the departed can assist their living relatives
- 10:00 am Chanting & Blessing (Shuen Yeung Temple)
- 10:30—12:30 Free Lunch
- Noon — Lion Dancers
- 1:00—2:30 Kite Flying
