(Minghui.org) May 13 is the 17th World Falun Dafa Day and the 24th anniversary of Falun Dafa’s public introduction. It is also the birthday of the founder of the practice, Mr. Li Hongzhi.

Falun Dafa practitioners held activities to celebrate the occasion in front of the Art Gallery in Vancouver on May 8, 2016.

Many passersby paused to watch the performances. Some asked where to learn Falun Gong, and a few local residents started to learn the exercises.

The exercise demonstration caught the attention of Mr. Huang, who wanted to learn. He followed the practitioners demonstrating the exercises and finished all of the second exercise.

It was the first time he had ever done a Falun Gong exercise. He held his arms in the various positions and concentrated for the entire half hour. He said he felt a strong energy and did not feel tired.
