The Northeast School PTA hosted The Global Fall Festival Saturday, a community celebration of fall festival and holiday traditions from around the world. There were live performances featuring a traditional Asian Lion Dance, an Indian Kathak Dance performed by Parul Shah, a Korean Fan Dance and Nanta Drum dance and the finale was a West African Dancing and Drum circle with Yahaya Kamate and guests. DJ Shell Spin was on hand rounding out the dance party.

The Northeast community enjoyed activities from around the world including:

  • Face painting for Dia de los Muertos
  • Sukkah decorations for Sukkot
  • African Collar Necklaces for harvest festivals such as Homowo and Yam Festival
  • Create leaves of gratitude for Thanksgiving

The Northeast Global Fall Festival was attended by more than 450 people who enjoyed sampling food from around the world. The event was chaired by Jessica O’Brien and Carla Buchanan.
