The practitioners set up banners reading "Falun Dafa" and "Truthfulness Compassion Forbearance" and displayed printed materials to introduce Falun Dafa. They passed out a lot of fliers and many people learned about Falun Gong and the truth behind the persecution of Falun Gong in China.

During the two day event, besides the local residents, practitioners also met a lot of visitors from India, China and Indonesia. The practitioners told them that Falun Dafa has spread to over 110 countries in the world. Only the Chinese Communist Party is persecuting Falun Gong. For the Chinese visitors, the practitioners also told them that over 57 million Chinese have withdrawn from CCP and its affiliated organizations. The Chinese visitors were also given the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Partybooks and "Focus on China" DVDs.

On the morning of the first day, shortly after the practitioners set up the booth and were about to do the exercises together, a 10-year-old boy came and wanted to join the exercise. The practitioners recognized him from his visit to the booth last year to learn the exercises. One year later, they met again happily. So the practitioners taught him the exercises again.

On the second day, the boy came again to help with moving boxes and setting up the display boards. Later, he practiced the exercises with the practitioners. He said to his younger sister, "You can come and join us. It is very good for your health." Before he left with his mother, he said to the practitioners, "We have to go home now. See you next year!"
