On March 8th-9th, Falun Gong practitioners from Long Island and Flushing, New York, attended the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Bayshore and Lake Ronkonkoma.
Both parades started at 2:00 p.m. and lasted for two hours. The Falun Gong procession was the only Chinese group in both parades. Practitioners demonstrated the exercises, and performed the traditional Chinese fairy dance and waist drums. They were warmly welcomed by the audience. Some people shouted "Falun Dafa," when they saw the practitioners' banners.
Some people asked what Falun Dafa is. The practitioners told them it is an ancient Chinese cultivation practice, and is practiced in more than 70 countries. Some people heard about it and knew about the persecution in China. They offered their best wishes to the practitioners.
