May 4th is the annual Flower Festival celebration day in Florissant, Missouri. This May is also the Florissant Falun Dafa Month. Like last year, St. Louis Falun Gong practitioners traveled to Florissant to participate in the Flower Festival parade.

In the afternoon, following a thunderstorm, there was a strong wind. Crowds of people packed the long street of more than one mile to watch the parade. When Falun Gong practitioner's procession passed by, people standing along the street gave a round of applause and waved to the practitioners. They acclaimed, "How peaceful, I feel they are so peaceful." "You are beautiful!" "Thank you!" Some people followed the practitioners on the float to do the Falun Dafa exercises. Children were even more excited and waved to the practitioners.
