Fall Carnival has always been an annual event of Berryessa Chinese School. It is a great opportunity for all teachers and students to get together in a fun event, share the joy of learning Chinese with the community, and raise funds for the class.
Unfortunately, the event has been canceled for the past two years due to the Covid pandemic. As the pandemic gradually subsided, schools resumed in person classes. Under the careful planning of all the teachers, students and volunteer parents, BCS resumed our Fall Carnival and Halloween costume contest at the Sierramont campus in San Jose on October 29. This is our first post-pandemic event.
The day of the event was beautiful and sunny, and the carnival attracted about 400 people. BCS would like to thank Taipei Economic and Culture Office Director Sophia Chuang, President of the Association of Northern California Chinese School, Lisa Wang, San Jose City Council Member, Dr. David Cohen, BUSD Superintendent Dr. Roxane Fuentes, BUSD Board of Trustees Kansen Chu and his wife, Hugo Jimenez, and Jai Srinivasan for attending our event. The school also presented teacher service awards to express our gratitude to our teachers.
The booths of this year’s carnivals were more diverse than in previous years. There were all kinds of hand-made delicious snacks, lunch boxes, fried rice noodles, braised pork rice, rice balls, Southeast Asian cuisine, cookies, Chinese pastries, beverages including bubble milk tea, milk tea, etc., which are popular among young people.
In addition to the food stalls, there are also game booths for the whole family to have fun, such as throwing hoops, tennis balls, sandbags, catching goldfish and other fun games, as well as flower arrangement stands carefully prepared by professional flower art teachers, and exquisite stationery and book booths .
Performances include kung fu, Chinese music performances, and the finale Halloween parade and contest. The participating students are all well-dressed and cute. Each participant receives a gift, and the winner receives a cash prize. Of course, there are many raffle drawings in carnival, and the winners receive exquisite gifts or gift certificates.
Thank you to all the board members, volunteers, teachers, parents, and classmates for their full planning and success in holding this Fall Carnival.
