About 300,000 people gathered in Brussels to watch a grand parade and share the joy of the holiday. The organizers divided the day's event into two parts: one was National Day parade, the other was various activities in the Royal Park in Brussels.
Following a military parade, Brussels Mayor Fred Tillman arrived at the starting point of the parade route to begin the civilian component of the parade. Among 15 parade entries this year, the Divine Land Marching Band was close to the front. Immediately following was a group of Falun Gong practitioners dressed in golden yellow kassayas demonstrating the Falun Gong exercises.
