(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioners from Atlanta were invited to take part in the 37th Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Parade on December 31, 2004 and were warmly received. Nearly 100 organizations participated in the annual parade. A CBS TV affiliate also came to broadcast the event live.
Falun Gong practitioners' procession was grand. It included an exercise demonstration, float, graceful dance of celestial maidens, and a waist drum troupe that inspired people with enthusiasm and an imposing array of banners. The rhythmic and sonorous roll of drums moved people and awaked people's goodness. The melodious music that seemed to come from heaven purified people's hearts. When the procession passed by, thousands of spectators warmly applauded.
When practitioners' procession passed by the platform, the master of ceremony talked about the mind and body benefits of Falun Dafa as well as the persecution experienced in China.
After the parade concluded, upon seeing the Falun Gong practitioners wearing yellow uniforms, many spectators nodded and smiled to them.
