On the evening of March 2nd, 2007, the grand parade was the most important activity of the lantern festival celebrations at Miaoli. Beginning at 8:00 p.m., participating groups lined up, including traditional arts groups, drum teams, divine drum team, lion dance, stilts, various dances and the traditional hakha big drums and eight tunes.
Among the 53 groups, there was the Shenwei Waist Drum Team by Falun Dafa practitioners, the Divine Land Marching Band, and a drum team from New Tang Dynasty TV Station. The three groups created a new peak of interest at the event.
Following the large banner "Falun Dafa," one hundred and twenty players from the Divine Land Marching Band played the music "Falun Dafa is good." The musicians were all Falun Dafa practitioners from northern and mid Taiwan. The music cleared the haze and won lots cheers.
Near the centre of the second half of the parading groups, was the Shenwei Waist Drum Team. They performed in good rhythm and harmony, spread the seeds of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance to the people, and moved numerous spectators.
Along the parade route, Falun Dafa practitioners distributed a special edition truth-clarification publication. It tells people that practising Falun Dafa can improve health and raise moral levels, and that Falun Dafa has spread to over 80 countries in the world where it receives universal acceptance and recognition. The flier also exposes the Chinese Communist Party's crime of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, then selling them for profit, and cremating the bodies to destroy the evidence.
Falun Dafa practitioners displayed the beauty of Dafa and left a good impression of Dafa in people's hearts.
