Redwood City, California: Falun Gong Performs in Independence Day Parade
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners were invited to the July 4 parade in Redwood City, the largest Independence Day parade in northern California. Falun Gong has participated in the annual parade for more than a decade.
Stephanie Hernandez Marquez, an organizer of the event, thanked Falun Gong practitioners for participating in the annual parade. She said, “I like that dragon. It flew up and down and interacted with spectators.”
Mr. Carr, one of the parade organizers, had helped with the event for 30 years. “[There are] a lot of Falun Gong practitioners in the parade. This is encouraging.” Carr said, “Falun Gong is a very good group. They are beautiful like flowers. The world needs peace and tolerance. The Falun Gong group brings peace to us.”
Heather said watching the Independence Day parade was a tradition for her family. “We like Falun Gong's performances. My daughter likes the dragon very much. I like their float the most. It’s exquisite,” she said.
