My host family lives very close to the Cherry Blossom festival location. I rode my bike early and spent a great time before an Au Pair meeting. Around 12:00 pm my Local Area Representative Polina and some Au Pairs from Philadelphia , Bucks County and NJ came to the Sakura Sunday event. We were so glad to see each other.
After a quick lunch, we went to see Prettiest Pet in Pink Parade. There were a lot homeless dogs there were waiting for being adopted, I hope this festival can help them find a home soon.
Then we enjoyed cosplay girls and guy sang Japanese songs. It’s full of power in their voices. After the singing, we enjoyed a great Cosplay Fashion Show.
It was my first time seeing a show like this.
Summer Blackhurst, the Go Au Pair blog’s author, in her post Childcare and Cultural Exchange talks about cultural exchange and cultural immersion that broaden kids horizons and teaches about another culture lives.
The Au Pair program brings the cultural exchange to all Au Pairs and Host Families. I really like Japanese festival at Fairmount park. So far, I attended all the Au Pair activities and I like all of them!
