39th Annual World Famous Spring Equinox Celebration
Eggs on End: Standing on Ceremony
This year's eggstraordinary event will take place:
MARCH 20 at 12:30 PM
BOWLING GREEN, MANHATTAN
The equinox moment: eggsactly 12:57 PM, signals the official start of spring. At this time, the sun crosses the equator into the Northern Hemisphere and it is possible to stand an egg up on its end.
According to Chinese custom, if you stand an egg on its end on the first day of spring, you will have eggsceptionally good luck for the entire year. The egg represents the life force in many cultures, and is particularly used to symbolize the rebirth of nature in the spring season.
A basket of 360 eggs will be provided for the eggshilarating standing ceremony. Participants are invited to bring drums and other musical instruments. This is a family-friendly event and FREE for all.
