At the end of the parade, practitioners presented music and dance performances on the stage in the park, and introduced the practice to residents who stopped to watch. They demonstrated the Falun Dafa exercises, as a number of people in the audience followed along. The practitioners performed songs – Falun Dafa Is GoodLotus Flower, and Bliss. They also presented several dances – an elegant fan dance and umbrella dance. The audience was treated to a waist drum performance, and then more songs, such as Coming for You, and Be Saved. Several young practitioners also played the violin and flute. There were even Vietnamese bamboo games to engage the audience. The festive atmosphere was filled with fun and joy.

Group exercises

Next to the stage, the practitioners set up a table and benches, where they taught children how to make folded paper lotus flowers on which the words “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” and “Falun Dafa is good” were printed. Practitioners also demonstrated the exercises and taught the movements to all who wanted to learn.
