On the parade route, passersby stopped and people in shops and offices watched. Some took pictures and some applauded.
The procession was long and vast. Ladies with classical dresses marched at the beginning and were followed by a float with fresh flowers. The words "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance" in Chinese on the head of the float were very eye-catching. Practitioners in golden suits demonstrated Falun Gong exercises on the float. A banner reading "World Falun Dafa Day" followed four lady practitioners holding a Falun emblem. The Northeast China Folk Dance Team and practitioners with Tang dresses danced along the way, followed by practitioners with various banners.
The parade ended after one and half hours with practitioners wishing Master a happy birthday.
