In the end of May 2011, four embodiments of indigenous Hong Kong culture - the Jiao Festival of Cheung Chau, the Dragon Boat Water Parade of Tai O, the Fire Dragon Dance of Tai Hang and the Yu Lan Ghost Festival of the Hong Kong Chiu Chow Community were successfully inscribed onto the Third National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage. All these four items fall within the definition of "Social practices, rituals and festive events" set out in the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage adopted by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).
