Devotees of the Chinese Bank Neow Shrine take part in a procession through the streets to mark the annual Vegetarian Festival in southern Thailand's town of Phuket on October 13, 2010. The festival begins on the first evening of the ninth lunar month and lasts for nine days, with many religious devotees slashing themselves with swords, piercing their cheeks with sharp objects and committing other painful acts to purify themselves, taking on the sins of the community.
