This most important one must be the Chinese New Year eve market. There are several markets like this during new year in Hong Kong, the most frequented one is in a park (called Victoria Park, there is a Queen Victoria statue there still). There is also one outside Wong Tai Sin Temple too I think.

About whether people still visit temples, they do. But most of them are 50 sth housewives, but young people go there as well i think, to pray for money and other earthly things! The most popular temple should be the aforementioned Wong Tai Sin Temple.

There is also a revival of popularity of this festival, where people go to this outlying island Cheung Chau(the omnipresent Momus went there during his HK trip) to see children dressing as some myth characters and people climbing a hill made of buns.
