Taipei, May 30 (CNA) Families around Taiwan took part Tuesday in a series of egg balancing events, a traditional Chinese activity, to mark the Dragon Boat Festival.

In Taoyuan City, over 300 families tried to balance eggs at an event outside Gloria Outlets.

Taoyuan Mayor Cheng Wen-tsan (鄭文燦), who attended the event and left his fingerprints on a 170-centimeter tall egg sculpture, said he hoped the activity would bring a year of good luck to his city.

According to folk culture, a person who succeeds in balancing an egg on its end on Dragon Boat festival day will have one full year of good luck.    [FULL  STORY]
