(Minghui.org) May 13 was the 21st annual World Falun Dafa Day, marking Falun Dafa's introduction to the world, and the birthday of Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong). To celebrate the day, Falun Gong practitioners in Taitung got together to do the Dafa exercises in Seaside Park on May 9, 2020. 

Their group practice caught the attention of tourists visiting the popular landmark. Some took photos, while some imitated the hand gestures of the practitioners. The practitioners also had group photos taken to wish Master Li a happy birthday.
