Many spectators greeted practitioners and mimicked the movements of practitioners who were demonstrating the Falun Gong exercises on a float.
Practitioners waist drum and lion troupe brought great joy to the spectators. Children were fascinated by the lions. The celestial maidens standing on the float also were very popular and received a lot of praise. Some residents who didnt receive handouts ran to catch practitioners to request the materials.
During the parade, practitioners found that the local residents were even more friendly to practitioners than last year. Many people took their initiative to ask practitioners questions about Falun Gong and the persecution, creating good opportunities for practitioners to clarify the truth.
