Tin Hau Festival - Joss House Bay

The main Tin Hau festival takes place at the oldest Hong Kong Tin Hau Temple (1266 CE) in Joss House Bay on the 23rd day of the 3rd moon of the lunar calendar.

Boats come from far and wide to celebrate the Sea Goddess' birthday carrying lion and dragon dancers and highly decorated fa pau (floral wreaths) on their bows.

This temple was only accessible by sea until a road was built to the Clearwater Bay Golf Club.
