In the afternoon, Falun Gong practitioners in Bodo attended their city’s celebration activities. They gave theatrical performances in Bodo's International Centre, including waist-drumming, Falun Gong exercise demonstrations, dancing, Chinese Violin, and singing. The audience enjoyed practitioners’ performances.
At 4pm, the grand parade began. Although the population of Bodo is less than fifty thousand, both sides of the street were full of people watching the parade. Falun Gong practitioners were at the front, starting with two Tang Dynasty dressed beauties giving out paper-made lotuses. They were followed by waist-drummers. When Falun Gong practitioners passed, they were warmly received by the audience who cheered and applauded.
