Practitioners in Moscow celebrated World Falun Dafa Day with a parade in Sokolniki park on May 11. There were practitioners dressed as celestial maidens, others demonstrating the exercises, still others wearing Tang Dynasty costumes, a dragon and a lion dance, and a waist drum team.

As they walked along the main road of the park, the tourists could hear the music “Falun Dafa Is Great.” Many came to watch the parade and took pictures. They were happy to receive paper lotus flowers on which were printed “Falun Dafa Is Great” and “Truthfulness Compassion Forbearance.”

After the parade, practitioners performed on the stage of the park. The host told about Falun Dafa's ancient origins, its great health benefits, and the principles of cultivation. Practitioners presented dances including “White Lotus,” “Ethnic Dance of Xinjiang,” “Udumbara Flowers,” “Fan Dance,” and “Umbrella Dance.” The audience was fascinated and warmly praised after their performances.

Many people became interested in learning Falun Gong after watching the exercise introduction and demonstration. Some learned the exercise movements on the spot.
