A man performs with fire during a Hungry Ghost Festival parade along the streets of Keelung, Taiwan, on Monday. It is believed by some worshipers that the gates of hell are opened during the month and dead ancestors return to visit their relatives. The Hungry Ghost Festival started this year on Aug. 10 and ends on Sept. 7 with traditional Chinese operas, puppet shows, and concerts by believers to appease the roaming spirits.
