(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in Australia participated in the annual Sydney Multicultural Festival on September 7, 2013. The festival, held in the town of Chastwood, is the biggest cultural and entertainment event of its kind in the area. It promotes harmony, peace, and equality between different races and cultures.

When the Falun Dafa parade procession passed by the judges' stage, government officials and guests greeted the practitioners with enthusiastic applause.

“The Falun Dafa Sydney Divine Land Marching Band is quite well known and has won many community event awards,” announced the parade moderator. “They have contributed a lot to our local culture. Falun Dafa is great!”

The Divine Land Marching Band, composed of Falun Dafa practitioners, performed numerous pieces, including, “Falun Dafa is Great,” “Drums and Trumpets Shake the Ten Directions,” and “Delivering Treasure.” Many spectators applauded and cheered the performance.

Some tourists from China asked practitioners if they could take a group photo with the band.

“The Falun Dafa procession is great!” exclaimed one Chinese man. “It would be great if people in the mainland could see this. Wonderful!”
