(Clearwisdom.net) Since 1958, every golden October, celebrating the harvest and appreciating the beautiful fall colors of the maple trees have become a traditional festival for residents of Baldwin, a small city in Kansas.
The Falun Gong practitioners' float, as well as the peaceful and harmonious music and exercise demonstration, attract an attentive audience
On the morning of October 15, 2005, a festival parade marked the prelude to this year's Maple Leaf Festival in Baldwin. The slight chill of the early morning did not affect people's enthusiasm for watching the parade. People and their families gathered on both sides of the streets of downtown, watching the procession of over 100 groups.
The Falun Gong practitioners' float slowly moved through the parade accompanied by the harmonious and refreshing music of "Pu Du" and "Ji Shi." The Falun Gong float brought splendor to the parade and immediately attracted the attention of many spectators. The music, the exercise demonstration, and the spirit of harmony and serenity touched every person who attentively watched. The practitioners sincerely wish for all kind-hearted people to keep in mind, "Falun Dafa and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance!"
