International Festival

Condit Families can “Travel the World in Bellaire”

 

You will follow a map throughout Bellaire and around Condit Elementary, where the Condit IFEST Country Representatives will present their heritage on their front lawns!

Condit’s International Festival (IFEST) will look a little different this year due to the current pandemic. This year the whole event is based on the concept of a “drive-thru”. Country representatives will represent their heritage in the convenience of their front lawn. All other participating families, the “Travelers” will receive a scavenger hunt page and a map to find the potential stopping points for the countries. Each stopping point will check off one item from the scavenger hunt. It is suggested to visit at least 5 countries if possible!

1. Everybody will start from their own household. There are no specific routes or starting points. Families are simply encouraged to visit the countries that they are interested in and to visit at least five different countries.

2. Only one (1) family will represent their respective country that they signed up for. If you are interested in being a Country Representative, see link below.

3. One country, however, can be represented by more than one family, e.g. six families could represent six different versions of Belgium or five families could represent five different versions of India. Participating “Travelers” have the option to choose freely to visit one, two, three, or all of the county representations in this case.

4. We encourage all of the participating families to get creative representing their respective countries! Feel free to wear your country’s dress, decorate your lawn and table, show pictures, flags, items, etc. Try to make sure items are visible from the street.

5. Please also consider to save an area in front of your house as stopping points for the “Travelers”.

While we like to bring all of the Condit families together for this great event, however we will also ask everybody to follow the CDC guidelines:

1. Everyone participating is asked to social distance at all times and to wear their masks all the time when interacting with others.

2. Everyone is also asked to drive carefully and safely around the neighborhood!
