Enjoyable Local Festa

Monday, November thirteenth, two thousands and six

the opening of the festaA community event was held in the junior high school that my eldest son belongs to yesterday. The event is called 'The communion of heart with heart in Torihiga junior high school's network'. (Torihiga is the abbreviation of the school's name.)

I went see the event with my family. There were much more stalls and games than I had expected. This event is held at this time of the year by staff of dozens people who work for the junior high school, the elementary schools or kindergartens near the junior high school. Most of the students who attend the elementary schools or kindergartens are to go to the junior high school in the future. Of course my 8-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter will go there someday.
Talking of my daughter, she took part in the opening ceremony as a member of the dancing and singing team. I took some videos of their performance. Let me show you them on this blog space. Must be cute. :) The last song is a song that is originally presented by 'Bay City Rollers' a long time ago, if my memory serves me right.

communion of heart with heart: 心と心のふれあい(According to 英辞郎)

at this time of the year: 毎年この時期に

Hi, there. I've saw the video clip. They are so cute.
"Iina iina ningentte iina...dengurikaette bye bye bye"
It reminds me of the ending music of a TV show. It's on the tip of my tounge, but I can't remember. What was that?

Hi Makiko,

I think it was the theme song of a TV program "Manga Nippon Mukashi Banashi".

Yes. That's it. Thank you, Pro.
