On Saturday October 21st from 4:00pm to 8:00pm we held the first ever AIM English Studio Halloween Party. Our goal, to have the most authentic North American Halloween Party in Japan! We had a Trick or Treat/Haunted House, Pumpkin Carving, Costume Contest, Pinatas, and lots of regular Fall Fair games like Bean Bag Toss, Musical Chairs, Bobbing for Apples, a Shooting Range and the ever popular Fish Pond.
We were wondering at first whether our students and families would enjoy an authentic western Halloween Party, but after we sold 230 meal tickets our fears were laid to rest. To say that the party was a smashing success would be an understatement. It was AWESOME! We had about 240 guests (students, their friends and families) and over 4600 pieces of candy.
We were a bit under staffed so I didn't get as many photos and video as I would have liked, however, I think I should still have enough to make a good Halloween DVD up for AIM. Anyways, the party was a great time for all who attended and although the staff was totally wasted after it was all said and done…none of us would hesitate to do it again! Below are a couple of pics from the party (click on the photos for bigger versions).
