(Clearwisdom.net) The annual Festival of Cultures was held at Falls Park in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on June 19, 2010. Thousands of people from surrounding towns attended the festival. Falun Gong practitioners set up a booth at the festival to introduce Falun Dafa (Falun Gong), a traditional cultivation practice following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

Many people accepted Falun Dafa brochures from young Falun Gong practitioners, and some stopped to find out more information. Some people left their contact information, wishing to learn Falun Gong.
Falun Gong practitioners have been participating in this festival for the past few years. They find that every year more people want to learn the cultivation practice. One mother and daughter became interested shortly after the festival started. They asked practitioners to show them the exercises and learned on the spot. They were happy to hear that a free introductory seminar would be held in a couple of weeks and left their contact information. They said in excitement, "Why have we just now found out about this? How could we have missed it before?"
