I like these words about our Fall Festival Reimagined: Three Cheers – from the Poughkeepsie Journal today:
To Poughkeepsie Day School’s First Fall Festival Reimagined, an ambitious new festival designed to celebrate the local and the global community. Visitors were given festival passports to mark the places and things they learned about during the day — and there was a lot. There was a parade led by ribbon dancers from the Mid-Hudson Chinese Language Center, carnival games from around the world, African mask-making, a Japanese karaoke lounge and a Chinese yo-yo demonstration. All-American festival foods such as hamburgers, hot dogs, cotton candy and popcorn were available as well as multicultural street food provided by the Poughkeepsie restaurant, Twisted Soul.
It was truly an amazing team effort led by the planners and volunteers of FFR2010. Thank you for creating something truly wonderful.
