People launch burning lanterns into the sea off Taiwan's northern port of Keelung early August 24, 2010, as part of the Hungry Ghost Festival or "Zhong Yuan Jie" festivities. It is believed by worshippers that the gates of hell are opened during the month and the dead ancestors return to visit their relatives. The Hungry Ghost Festival starts this year from August 10 and ends on September 7 with traditional Chinese operas, puppet shows and concerts organized by believers to appease the roaming spirits.
