Thousands of ducks wait to be sold at the Ghost Festival outside the Liu Yong Farm Market in Guangxi province, Chinanews says.
The Ghost Festival, also known as Zhong Yuan Jie, occurs on the 15th night of the seventh month. Guangxi people traditionally eat duck meat on the eve of the Ghost Festival. Duck vendors gather on the street to buy and sell ducks at the same time every year. It’s estimated that over 10,000 ducks are sold each Ghost Festival Eve.
