Bunkasai!



Last week, from Thursday through Sunday, the school had its annual Bunkasai, or Cultural/School Festival. It's so much fun! So much good food to eat and things to see... so, pictures! ^_^

So much effort goes into the festival, and the entire thing is run by students. Even the banners are crazy awesome. ^_^

Part of the festival from the fourth floor girls' lav in the CIE (Center for International Education). The booths are all for food--and this isn't even half of them. There were two spaces near this field that were used for "lives", or live performances by musical groups and other clubs.

Our cheerleaders are insane. They won the national cheerleading championships a few years ago, and it shows. I took a video of their whole routine, so I'm afraid I don't have any more stills of the jumps and things they did.

Got to see these drummers perform... got some video, too. When they drum it's almost like a dance--really something to see. These performers used background music that they accompanied.

...you can't pose under a paper arch in a boring pose, after all.

The whole thing was a blast... too bad there isn't one next semester. -_-
