This is the first time that Falun Gong has won a prize in this affluent community of families from Hong Kong and Taiwan.

In the local newspaper an article called the Falun Gong group, "Colorful Falun Dafa." In this parade, the Falun Gong group included a waist drum team with golden yellow suits, a colorful Chinese national costumes team, a heavenly maidens team, and a westerner and little practitioners demonstrating exercises on the float. They received a warm welcome from the spectators.
