United States: Practitioners Participate in St. Patrick’s Day Parade in San Diego, California

The annual St. Patrick's Day’s Parade in San Diego was held on March 17th, 2007 in Balboa Park. Falun Gong practitioners took part in the parade for the third time. The gold colour of the practitioners’ group was very eye-catching in the sea of green.

Practitioners’ group was led by a big banner which says “Falun Dafa”. Waist drummers, a float and dancers followed. The spectators liked the waist drums very much. Some of them even danced to the drums. The demonstration of exercises on the float also left a deep impression. Fan dancers manifested Oriental art and traditional Chinese costumes for the spectators. Many people thanked the practitioners after the parade. In the afternoon, an anti-torture exhibition was set up in Balboa Park. Some people who watched the parade in the morning came to the exhibition. After the parade, people wanted to learn more about Falun Gong.

Balboa Park is a famous tourist spot in San Diego. Since it was sunny, many people came to watch the parade, including many Chinese. They smiled and many took photos.
