It’s good luck

It’s good luck to touch the dragon. Mostly I see white, red and black dragons. This is the first that I recall to be blue. You can see all the hands that reach out as the dragons pass by. Some of the white ones are a bit dingy from all the touching. I guess that it’s impractical to throw it into a washing machine. And it’s probably bad luck to retire the costume. They’re very superstitious, those Chinese.
