After many previous attempts failed, Mr. Liang Baofan's wife was finally allowed to visit her husband for five minutes in September. Mr. Liang was sentenced to four years in prison at a secret trial in March 2016. It was only in early 2017 that his family found out that he was incarcerated. The director of the prison told his wife, “You cannot see him. If he was a murderer, a thief, or a drug addict instead of a Falun Gong, I would let you see him today.”

More than 100,000 spectators watched the parade. Many of them cheered for the practitioners' marching band, colorful float, and demonstration of the Falun Dafa exercises.
