On Saturday 9th of December 2017, School on the Boat organized a new charity event: The Christmas Talent Show at Hanoi Rock City.
Such an amazing day with so many happenings and activities!
From 2 p.m. to 12 a.m., School on the Boat Team works all together to make this day unforgettable for the public and the many volunteers who came to help us.
Let’s take a look at the program of the day.
During the afternoon, from 2 p.m., HRC was full of different stalls and workshops:
Christmas Handicraft: a workshop for kids to paint and decorate Christmas items
Pho Cuon: A traditional Vietnamese food workshop. The public could learn with our dear Thuy how to prepare these delicious spring rolls.
School on the Boat Christmas cards and donations: A stalls were people could get information about the NGO and our project. Also they could give the donation that they wish or get a nice Christmas card to offer to their family and friends.
Tattoo body painting: The amazing Emile Rousseau offered his time during the entire day to paint and draw beautiful sketches of peoples arms. Was an opportunity for those who enjoy tattoo to have a chat with him.
Let’s just Be Mermaid: The super cool Diane came to expose her creation: crowns made of shells and jewelleries.
LP4Y: Our friend from this great NGO came to bring delicious Christmas cakes. They prepared it with their program “Bread and Smiles”.
Xuon Vegan: Amazing Thuy Van and her team cooked Vegan desserts for everyone.
Banh Mi 1960: no worries for those who were hungry, because the great Linh came to cook his delicious Banh Mi!
Photobooth: A handmade “Instagram” frame by our dear Théo. A really nice way to get souvenirs from this day by taking pictures with family and friends.
2nd Hand Clothes: an ephemeral shops open all the day, giving people the opportunity to satisfy their shopping urge.
Everything went perfectly, everyone played the game and was enjoying this celebration. Then, at 5 pm the Kids talent show started. We had three contenders and an amazing host of the show: our lovely Hannah (she’s gifted for this job)
Trống cơm: a group of 5 kids came to present their super cute choreography
Mr Chiiip: Chi Linh’s son came to show his great energy with his song
Miss Chi: She came to perform a song with her sweet voice
Those Three performance were really good. It took a lot of courage for these kids to perform in front of an audience. Impossible to decide who was the winner so we decided that they all won the contest.
