(Minghui.org) For Falun Dafa practitioners around the world, May is a season of gratitude. Thirty years ago, the practice was introduced and for the past 23 years, May 13 has been celebrated as World Falun Dafa Day.

On this special occasion, Toronto practitioners held numerous activities in front of city hall including group exercises, an art show, free exercise teaching, and a parade. Elected officials and community leaders arrived at noon and gave speeches. They also praised practitioners for their efforts.

In addition, the city government lit up the landmark sign, “TORONTO,” in yellow and blue lights to celebrate World Falun Dafa Day and the 30th anniversary of Falun Dafa’s introduction to the public.
