On June 3rd, 2007, the "World's Longest Street Festival on the World's Longest Street" was held on Yonge Street in Aurora, a suburb of Toronto, Canada. Falun Gong attracted a lot of attention during this festival.

This is the 12th year of the festival and more than 800 groups participated in it. According to the organisers' estimation, several hundred thousand people attended the festival. Falun Gong practitioners from Toronto also had a booth at the festival. They exposed the brutality of the persecution to the public. They also displayed some artwork by practitioners and passed out copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. Many people accepted the materials and some of them bought books and artwork.
Barbara, of Aurora, had practised different forms of qigong for 35 years. Later, she learned Falun Gong through the Internet, and practised it by herself for a while. She was very glad to come across the local practitioners. She asked how to join them for group exercises.
A teenager told practitioners that he liked the paintings a lot, because they manifest the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance."
While distributing materials, practitioners also noticed that many people were quite familiar with Falun Gong.
