The Halloween Parade: An ASIJ Tradition

The ASIJ campus looked a little spookier than usual on October 30 as ghosts, vampires, superheroes and all sorts of magical creatures paraded through the school as part of our annual Elementary School Halloween celebration. Both our teachers and students got creative with their costumes in a Halloween tradition that has spanned over 40 years at ASIJ.

The Force was strong with students and faculty this year, with many Star Wars-themed costumes. The likes of Yoda, Chewbacca and a host of storm troopers were spotted in the parade. Parents and students from High School and Middle School joined in the fun, donning costumes and watching enthusiastically. Following the parade, students enjoyed a carnival of games set up throughout the school and (hopefully) used up some of the energy from all that sugar!

Of the post-parade activities, one of the most popular may have been the Halloween dance. As fun for teachers as it was for students, the new multipurpose room was transformed into a dance club, complete with a disco ball, crazy lights and a DJ.

Boo! It’s the Halloween carnival

Both our teachers and students got creative with their costumes and the elementary library was even transformed into the Willy Wonka Chocolate factory!

Tokyo Disneyland may be known for impressive parades, but for one day around Halloween ASIJ puts on a procession that, while not equal in size, perhaps wins in creativity and variety. Students of all ages joined parents in cheering on our Elementary School students on November 1st as they transformed into all kinds of funny, magical and “scary” creatures and paraded through the school.  Teachers and staff also appeared a little sillier than usual, or so we’d like to think!
