This annual Chinese New Year celebration was filled with the atmosphere of traditional Chinese culture and arts, and it has attracted more and more Americans. As usual, practitioners' booth was located in a prominent position at the entrance of the third floor. While playing truth-clarifying video programs, the practitioners also demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises continuously, attracting many spectators. Many people had heard about the persecution of Falun Gong even before they came to the booth, but they could not understand why Jiang's regime persecutes such a peaceful practice.
Moreover, the event organizers also specifically allocated time in the afternoon for practitioners to demonstrate Falun Gong. While practitioners were demonstrating the exercises, western practitioners narrated, introducing the principles of Falun Gong and the unique mind and body health improvements acquired through the practice. Many people thus started to learn Falun Gong on the spot and wanted to learn more about Falun Gong. After learning the second exercise of Falun Gong, a young lady said that she felt wonderful.
