At the world's largest (and longest running) tens of thousands of people - nearly the entire city - along with hundreds of tourists from around the globe will celebrate this 8-day long festival by dressing in all white, eating lots of vegetarian food, celebrating with daily parades, costumes, dancing and fireworks in an annual ritual that dates back nearly two hundred years.
