The Ew Geng sacred ceremony was held with the Nine Emperor Gods in a procession from the Kathu Chinese Shrine to Saphan Hin in Phuket town before heading back to the shrine.
Male and female devotees were stabbing their faces with various items such as sharp rods and swords to show that they had relieved the burden of unlucky things and bad karma from the people who were waiting for them along the road. Many Thais and foreigners watched the procession.
