May 22nd is Victoria Day. Every year, the city of Victoria holds a grand parade to celebrate the holiday. Together with 138 other groups, Falun Gong practitioners from Victoria and Vancouver participated in this 108th annual parade, which was attended by some 40,000 locals and a TV programme covering it was broadcast live nationwide.

The procession was led by a giant "Falun Dafa is Good" banner. Even though it was raining, about 40,000 local residents watched the parade in person.
