Los Angeles: Practitioners Join Local Chinese Community Spring Festival Celebrations (Photo)
(Clearwisdom.net) On January 24, 2004 practitioners participated in the "Four seas celebrates Spring Festival" event in the southern California cities of Alhambra and San Gabriel, both of which have many Chinese residents. This is one of the biggest events of the year in the Chinese community. The event includes a parade and a street-market. Each year the event attracts many Chinese and Spanish-speaking people. This is the first time Falun Gong practitioners obtained a booth in the street-market.
During the first-day activities, many Chinese came to our booth to ask for materials. The booth often had a lot of visitors. Many people asked, "Can I take some more copies for my family members?" "Where can I learn the exercises?" "I have read this before, do you have any new materials?" Some people were afraid to take truth materials at first, later they changed their mind after talking to our practitioners.
