By Localiiz 22 October 2015
Head up the Peak this weekend and watch it transform into a musical carnival where runners, celebrities, and Hong Kongers come together to raise funds for charity. Organised by the Sedan Chair Charities Fund (SCCF), the event turns 41 this year and falls under the theme, “Our Music Festival on The Peak: Turn On and Tune In”. Watch race teams push their physical and mental fitness to the utmost as they carry their decorated sedan chair, complete with passenger, to the finish line. Expect live music performances, games, a bazaar full of trinkets, and of course, plenty of hilarious costumes (check out some of last year's below).
