International Day 2018!

Published: July 7, 2018

Yesterday was International Day 2018 and it was a blast! There were so many fun and amazing activities that villagers and guests could watch and participate in. Each village sent a handful of villagers to participate in a biathlon around the various Concordia Language Village camps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Salolampi joined the rest of the villages in the International Day parade walking from our village to Waldsee, where the festivities were held. During the opening ceremony, each camp had a villager introduce their dean and each camp recognized 10-year villagers. Each village presented a dance in with music in their respective languages before joining together to perform the International Day dance, centering on the theme of courage. There were many stations and booths to see to try international foods, candies and drinks. Villagers could participate in the soccer World Cup, open mic and village song sharing, a global art show, international film festival and more! A villager favorite was the dunk tank - where proceeds go to providing scholarships for future villagers.
