Falun Gong Is Greatly Admired by Citizens during the England Oxford Mayor Accession Celebrations (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On June 3, the Oxford Mayor accession celebration, which takes place once a year, was held in the City of Oxford as expected. The UK Falun Gong practitioners attended the entire celebrations including the grand parade around the city and the performances.
The citizens highly praised the traditional Chinese culture exhibited by the Falun Gong procession
The Falun Gong procession attracted much attention in the parade. Two female practitioners holding the banner reading "Falun Gong is good" walked in the front. Following them were three young practitioners holding in their hands posters reading "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance". Two young practitioners, dressed in ancient style child-clothing, each holding a bunch of colorful balloons displayed the delightful quality of the ancient Chinese costume. Another young practitioner, also dressed in ancient style child-clothing, happily sat in full lotus position on a delicately designed lotus flower float. She was so pure and noble, naive and lovely. Following them, young female practitioners dressed in various ancient Chinese style costumes and holding colorful fans in their hands performed elegant dances accompanied by the music of "Falun Dafa is good". Two practitioners holding the large banner reading "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance" were walking at the end. The spectators on the roadsides were deeply moved by the beauty, serenity and the unique traditional Chinese culture displayed by the Falun Gong procession. They constantly praised: "This is so beautiful!" Spectators holding cameras eagerly caught up in front of the Falun Gong procession to take pictures. Several other practitioners distributed Falun Dafa flyers to spectators on the roadsides. Some news media also interviewed practitioners on spot.
The Mayor of the City of Oxford enjoyed watching Falun Gong practitioners' performances
After the two-hour parade, the processions arrived at the performance place. Falun Gong booths attracted many visitors. Two practitioners used brushes to write the Chinese names for the visitors on a piece of white paper imprinted with the introduction of Falun Dafa. In this way, they not only introduced Dafa to visitors but also spread the Chinese culture. A continuous flow of visitors came to ask for their names to be written in Chinese. Other practitioners continuously demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises and performed the dances that they choreographed. In the afternoon, the Mayor of the City of Oxford came to the Falun Gong booth. With great interest, she especially looked on practitioners writing her name in Chinese and she also attentively watched practitioners performing the Falun Gong exercises. Practitioners introduced to her Falun Dafa and also presented her Dafa booklets. Shortly after, practitioners, some dressed in practice uniforms and some in Dafa yellow T-shirts demonstrated the elegant five-sets of Falun Gong exercises for all the spectators. Their performance showed the wonderfulness of Dafa and also deeply touched the spectators on spot. One city government official again and again expressed his admiration toward Dafa from the bottom of his heart.

To prepare for this activity, a practitioner from Oxford especially ordered the ancient style child-clothing from Hong Kong. The female practitioners who participated in the dance performance stayed late in night to select music and choreograph the dances. The effects showed that it is really a good and effective way to exhibit the wonderfulness of Dafa through various forms together with the traditional Chinese culture.
