Practitioners bring the truth about Falun Gong

Mid-September is warm and sunny in San Diego. Spectators packed both sides of the parade route to watch this annual show. As the only Chinese group, the Falun Gong procession was once again an eye-catching part of the parade. The dynamic waist drum troupe, beautiful float, peaceful exercise demonstration and elegant dances won warm applause from the spectators. Many people exclaimed: "Peaceful", "beautiful", "fantastic"!

An 8-year-old practitioner meditated in a lotus flower positioned on the float and attracted many children and parents' attention.

When practitioners passed the main stage, the host announced warmly: "This is the Falun Dafa group, also known as Falun Gong. The practice teaches 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance'. Welcome to Poway.

The organizer later said: "We are so glad to have you. Your performance was great! We hope you will come back next year!"

Several thousand Poway residents once again experienced the beauty of Falun Dafa.
