Falun Gong practitioners participate in Independence Day parade in Coronado

On July 4, thousands of spectators crowded roadside along the parade route.

The Falun Gong procession was led by a Falun Dafa banner and an enthusiastic waist-drum troupe playing to the song “Falun Dafa Is Great.” The float was next and practitioners on the float demonstrated the peaceful exercises amidst colorful lotus flower decorations.

Before and after the parade, many people asked for more information about Falun Dafa.
