Thank You! 2016 International Carnival *2016国際カーニバル*

The 4th Annual International Carnival was held on Sunday, November 27th at the Takasaki Minami Elementary school gymnasium. As this year’s main event, in addition to our JOMO JET members, there were 39 volunteers that helped from beginning to end. Participants were able to enjoy learning about different countries and cultures through posters, booths, demonstrations, and performances.

11月27日(日)に、高崎市立南小学校の体育館で「第4回2016国際カーニバル」を開催しました。毎年国際カーニバルはJOMO JETのメインイベントになっているから、JOMO JETのメンバー以外に、39人のボランティアが最初から、最後まで頑張って手伝ってくれました。参加者はポスター、体験、パフォーマンスなどを通して、色々な国や文化について楽しんで学べました。

This year we had more booths than we’ve ever had before! These booths represented Australia, Indonesia, Bulgaria, Nepal, Germany, Punjabi in Canada, African American Culture, Spectrum, and Western Boy & Girl music groups. With many unique things to learn and try, these booths were some of the best yet!

This year’s performances included exciting musical acts, traditional dances, interactive games, competitions, and more.



As we do every year, at the end of the event, all the remaining participants and volunteers joined in on a big dance, run by the African American culture booth representatives. This year, we did a new dance called “The Cupid Shuffle!”

イベントの最後に、アフリカ系アメリカ人文化のブースのボランティアたちにアメリカで人気のダンスを教えてもらい、参加者、ボランティア、そしてJOMO JETメンバー全員で踊りました。でも今年、「チャチャスライド」の代わりに「キューピッドシャッフル」という新しいダンスを踊りました。

Thank you so much to everyone who volunteered and participated in this year’s International Carnival. We hope you had a great time and we look forward to seeing you next year!
