These days, the college festival season is approaching. Our college’s festival name is Dae Dong festival. The Dae Dong festival has many programs : a hangglider at In kyung Lake, throwing water ballons, rowing boats in In kyung Lake, a dunking machine (our student called gravity equipment) is like this : One person sits on a chair above a container full of water. Other people throw a ball at a target. It they hit the target, the chair drops the person into the water.

And club at night. Every year at 9p.m. Our school has an open air outdoor dance club in front of In kyung Lake. Every person enjoys the dancing and drinking at this club. The club ends at 2a.m. Almost all people look forward to the club. The last is the selling of slaves. In each department, five people are “slaves”. People pay money to own a slave. A slave must obey his master for one week.

And then there are two type of performances. The first type are students singing and dancing contests. The winners get gifts.

In the second type, famous singers come to our festival and perform for us. For example, at least year’s festival. Girl’s generation and Supreme Team were invited.

And student selling clothes accessories and food. Many student make food and sell it. The most popular items are drinks and side dishes. And they make cocktails and put them into sandwich bags. The students can consume them while they walk around. Also they make coffee, snacks and shakes. Other things they sell are skewered lamb kebabs, ice cream and balloons. This Dae Dong festival is very exciting. You can look forward to this festival.
