Minnesota: Falun Gong Twin Cities Club Participates in University Homecoming Parade
(Minghui.org) The Falun Gong Twin Cities Club participated in the University of Minnesota's Homecoming Parade on October 4, 2019.
This was the university's 105th Homecoming Day, an annual Autumn tradition which alumni, students and local residents eagerly anticipate. The parade was held Friday evening. Despite the cold, several thousand people lined the parade route.
Practitioners demonstrated the exercises on the float and several people did the exercise movements along with them. People happily accepted information about Falun Gong and handmade lotus flowers.
As the university's band members passed the practitioners' float, they shouted out Falun Gong's principles displayed on the float banner: Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.
Led by Goldy Gopher, the University of Minnesota mascot, parade-goers repeatedly shouted, “What do we believe in? Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance!”
