Jiao-festival of Cheung Chau is on the third national list of intangible cultural heritage in 2011. The Bun Carnivals held since the re-commissioning of the Bun Scrambling Competition in 2005 have been well received by the public. The wide range of programmes including the Selection of Finalists for the Bun Scrambling Competition, the Climbing Carnival as well as the Bun Scrambling Competition not only have attracted over 10 000 participants but also tens of thousands of local and overseas spectators. Among these programmes, the Bun Scrambling Competition has been the focus of attention and has become one of the most representative traditional festive events in Hong Kong.
