A wholesale food market in Nanjing, Jiangsu, held an egg-smashing competition on Monday to celebrate its opening, which attracted numerous curious onlookers.

The organizer provided 600 eggs and invited pedestrians to smash them. He promised that anyone who got a double-yolk egg would win 1,000 yuan ($129), and all participants received a cooked egg. Participants ranged in age from 68 down to 3.

Although no one won a 1,000-yuan prize, many participants said they enjoyed the opening ceremony. The smashed eggs were cooked to treat the supermarket employees for dinner.
