For the fourth year in a row (and the last year!) we made our way to Oita City to watch the kindergarten marching group perform in a big marching festival. As always they did an amazing job in a huge stadium (one of the world cup soccer matches was held there so it is no small place) in front of a crowd of thousands. Of course the crowd is concentrated into one area, but still.... It is sometimes hard to remember that the children in this group are all between 4 and 6 years old. Here is a very shaky video which shows a little of what the group is doing and a lot of what my son is doing... It is very long and not so clear, so feel free to watch the first 10 seconds and turn it off! All the noise (aka music) is made by the children - drums, synthesiser etc. The teachers are only there to pick up the drum sticks when someone flings them with too much energy!
