Birthday Celebration of the Goddess of Mercy 清明春祭

The birthday of Goddess of Mercy (Guan Yin) is celebrated on the nineteenth day of the sixth month of the lunar calendar.

Each year, celebration for approximately 3 weeks is held with stage shows, singing and dancing performances as well as singing competition.

農曆三月初九,儀式由新堯灣儀式專家引導坡眾舉行,包含上香、請神、敬酒、奏表、祈願、答謝及退座等。儀式以金紙謝神,但大量燒化銀紙致鬼。儀式的末尾是搶孤,燃放炮竹後,眾人一陣狂搶,十分熱鬧。最後將豬羊載至慈善社分切,總理與福首皆分得豬肉一長條,其他則烹煮,作為全體參與者之午餐。
