On the morning of November 17, 2001, over 60 practitioners from New Jersey, DC, Delaware, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia participated in the state's biggest parade in Harrisburg, capital of the state of Pennsylvania. The theme of the parade was "Children Seeing the World." The weather was very good and many young practitioners came to participate in the parade. To the accompaniment of Dafa music Pudu and Jishi, the practitioners demonstrated the exercises and distributed Dafa literature.

Among hundreds of groups participating in the parade, the Dafa float was especially spectacular. Many people in the audience accepted the truth-clarifying materials and waved their hands, greeting the practitioners.
