The festival lasts for a week, and for three days everyone becomes vegetarian. In fact, even the MacDonalds replaces their hamburgers with mushroom burgers!
Activities abound throughout the week, including lion dances, stilt walking, much drum and cymbal beating (to ward off evil spirits), acrobatics and opera.
