Ethnic Fest

Friday, April 26, 2013

Today at my school was a huge annual event, Ethnic Fest. All the student groups bring in food, there are performances. Today we saw belly dancing, spoken word poetry, Irish dance and songs, a bboy crew, traditional Mexican dance, bachata dancing, etc.

Many of the student groups also have booths where they sell traditional foods of their culture (or things that will just make money). For example, here's the Black Student Union selling soul food:

I always get Asian Club's food which is amazing. This year I got two eggrolls instead of all the extra rice and sauce. They were also vegetarian.

I used to go to Friends of Islam for MORE food and baklava. This year I just made a donation.

I am still amazed at how I managed to stay within my calories. But a lot of my students didn't!

The performances were incredible. My favorite group was probably the bboys. Their advisor even came out and danced with them.

A lot of the kids dress up in traditional costumes or get special shirts made. My favorite shirts were by the Jew Crew:

Some of the student cause groups were also there and I stopped by to lend moral support to Amnesty International:

So it was an amazing day at a special school with incredible kids!
