On October 15th, Dallas practitioners participated in the 2nd Asian-American Festival in Garland. The theme of the festival was to enhance communication between ethnic Asian groups in the US. The festival included a parade, a vendor show and a performance programme. Organisers said that there were about 250 performers and the festival attracted many tourists from all kinds of ethnic groups.
Though practitioners didn't hear of and apply for the event until the week before, the organiser was delighted to hear that practitioners were to perform traditional Chinese dances and Falun Gong exercises. She repeatedly encouraged practitioners to participate in the event.

|People watch the performance|
Three practitioners performed the tradition "Flower Fairies" dance. As the style was completely different from other performances, the spectators were completely immersed in the peacefulness of the dance and people from other places also came closer to watch.
Practitioners' exercise demonstration was also very eye-catching. While others were showing the exercises, an American practitioner talked about Falun Gong. After the performance, the host, who came from Mainland China, said: "Falun Gong is really relaxing."
After seeing practitioners' performances, the event organiser was deeply touched. She said that she also wanted to practise Falun Gong and invited practitioners to participate in an even larger community event next year. Practitioners said that participating in community events is a good way to clarify the truth and let more people learn about Falun Dafa.
