Said to be a hundred years history, every
year in May all people on the island  must
kept vegetarian diet for three days, at the
last  day  the  procession  held .   When

midnight  came  hundreds  young  men
hurried up to the three bun towers,  torn
off all the buns, put them in bag or spread
them  over  the  crowd.  This  activity 
of
bun-snatching   was   ceased   after  an
accident
in 1978, the bamboo structure
of the bun
tower bent in the middle and
half fall.
The modern style bun-snatching
came  back  at  2005 ,
  it  changed   to mountaineering equipped climbers  and
steel structure tower
.
The  festival  itself  is  an  combination of
praying to gods, ganged together, and to
navigate the lost spirits.
