The Tian Guo Marching Band was invited to perform during the event and practitioners had a booth to introduce Falun Dafa.

As the pandemic has slowed down in Taiwan, the tomato festival was held as scheduled. Many festival goers said that the Tian Guo Marching Band and Waist Drum performances brought a lot of joy to the event.
