During the event, many people wanted to know about Falun Gong. They were shocked by the brutal persecution and many signed their names to support Falun Gong practitioners. A young girl, who learned the facts of the persecution, held the truth clarifying newspaper and shouted, "I am going to show this to the president of United States." She helped practitioners to clarify the facts to her family and friends, who signed their names to support the anti-persecution efforts.
On May 26, practitioners took part in the festival parade. Many people watched the parade. Although the practitioners' group was not very large, the lovely lotus flower and two girls demonstrating the exercises in the lotus flower won a lot of applause. The waist drum performance was also warmly welcomed.
Many people came to the practitioners' booth to learn more about Falun Gong after the parade. An older gentleman asked for a petition form from practitioners, because he wanted to help collect signatures. By the end of the activity, he told the practitioners that he had collected many signatures to support Falun Gong.
