The Moon Festival in Korea is a celebration of the harvest blessings. The festival featured Korean cuisine and crafts.
Korean Falun Gong practitioners in southern New Jersey set up a booth to introduce Falun Dafa and expose the persecution of practitioners in China. They also took the opportunity to introduce the upcoming performance by Divine Performing Arts in Philadelphia in December. A woman was fascinated by the poster for the show. She said that she missed the opportunity to see it last year and hoped to see it this year.
Children from the Minghui School Dance Troupe performed traditional Chinese dances. The host introduced them, announcing, "To promote multiculturalism, we specifically invited the children from the Minghui School Dance Troupe, the only non-Korean group present, to perform Chinese dances."
The children performed "Lotus Dance," "Colored Ribbon Dance," "Planting Lotuses," and "Falun Dafa Is Great." These young people are from the greater Philadelphia area and many of them practice Falun Gong. Their dances showed their purity, beauty and kindness and received warm applause from the audience of nearly two hundred.
