(Clearwisdom.net) On the weekend of July 11-14, Dafa practitioners from New York and New Jersey introduced Dafa at a carnival in upstate New York. The event was the annual family carnival that consisted of music, rides and various booths. Practitioners demonstrated and taught the Falun Dafa exercises from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. each day. Hundreds of people learned about Dafa and many learned the movements.

On Saturday afternoon, to our surprise, Congressman Gilman stopped by our booth. He and his wife asked us about the exercises and said they would like to try them sometime. We gave him a copy of the exercise instruction video and a copy of Falun Gong. He said they would try the exercises at home.
