La Ferria de San Miguel - a la escuela -September 24

The San Miguel festival is celebrated worldwide at Waldorf schools.  The kids re-enact the slaying of the dragon and then participate in various activities desgined to "slay their inner dragons".  Above are most of the kids, in period costume.  Each class performed a short skit or song.

Will's class.  He's second from left.

The dragon arrives and the kids throw their hand made arrows at him.

The balancing challenge

The wobbly balance beam over a pool of water.

And, our favorite, wrap the rope in diesel-doused rags and light it on fire, then have the kids jump over it.
