山道盂蘭勝會



今天路過山道,赫然發覺潮洲團體在毗鄰加倫台的山道斜路處搭了個棚攪盂蘭盛會,遂走過去湊熱鬧,也乘機拍了些照片權作記錄。  由於山道行人路比較狹窄,戲棚和祭祀的神壇頗為侷促.    記憶中早期西環的盂蘭勝會設於觀龍樓對落科土街的空地 (即今日堅尼地城地鐵站和科土街遊樂場) 處, 我還記得夜裏鑼鼓喧天,然後煞科夜是例牌的拍賣祭品,那振耳欲聾的喇叭徹夜轟炸至凌晨三四點才結束,當時覺得很煩厭,現在回想起來,卻是童年回憶不可或缺的部份。  今天政府推廣傳統節目,盂蘭節恭逢其會,能夠著力保存中國文化當然是件好事,問題是,年青的一代有興趣搞中國鬼節嗎?他們寧可保留精力去搞去玩 Halloween ,更有甚者香港寸金尺土,那來這 麼多空地去搞一年一度的盂蘭勝會? 場地難求是盂蘭節搞手最頭痛的地方。  我只希望,這個如此獨特的節日能夠繼續傳承下去.

  1. Dear Sai Wan Big Brother,
    I have been living along the Hill Road, up and down , for more than 3 decades.
    In my memory, this YU LAN OPERA event has been there since 80's.
    In the past, the event would last for more than a week when compared with only a few days currently.
    There were temporary kitchen and team would have meals in the open area. ( TAI WOR FAN).
    At the night time, hawkers were selling snacks within the avenue, kids were playing around. Haha

    1. 童年時,西環盂蘭節打醮很熱鬧, 主辦單位將幾架貨事泊在一起權作舞台攪綜合表演. 有歌舞, 有魔術等表演, 是我童年美好回憶的一部份~~

  2. In the past, there were a busy wet market in the junction of Hill Road and South Lane. Inside the South Lane , there were stalls selling cheap clothing and domestic goods.
    At that time, there were a stone stair-case joining the Hill Road and Queen's Road West, in the site of the current market complex.
    The man called " Kai ( chicken) Yu", who were a live chicken seller, hanged the cages over the cliff of the stair-case and kept his live chicken there.

    1. I dont recollect any wet market in south lane, this is because in my childhood time we dont have to/ go that far to buy groceries. South Lane is now a quite street with only a few isolated/deserted street stalls, however, new residential skyscrapers are erected waiting for occupation~~

  5. 小弟整个小學及初中就在那附近度過,有同學就住在保德街,對上是聖安多尼堂聖母池。還有多少人記起山道殮房?老父就在大道西尾工作。去年回港,曾到附近溜漣,除曾就讀學校還保存七八分舊貌外,改變很大了,尤記得李子飛跌打及其肥儍仔。水街完全改變了。唏嘘!

    1. 山道附近的變化已經𣎴算巨大了, 起碼保德街, 加倫台仍未有參天高厦~~

    1. 其實爲何不可以先派籌, 再予以充足時間慢慢攞米?

  9. 又係我呢個考試要食雲吞麵嘅迷信街坊:
    我記得喺六七十年代,厚和街都有舉行盂蘭勝會,地點喺華僑子弟學校﹝唔知有冇記錯校名﹞附近,有大大個嘅紙紮鬼王、仲有木頭公仔戲睇,非常熱鬧!
