Hetalia Day in LA 2011
Location: Anthony C. Beilenson Park (Lake Balboa) in Van Nuys, CA
Address: 6300 Balboa Blvd., Van Nuys, CA 91406
Date: Saturday, October 22nd
Time: 10am to 6pm
Just a quick summary of what Hetalia Day is: Oct 24th is United Nations Day. Someone out there in livejournal land had the idea of applying this to the global Hetalia fandom. So what does that mean? A day of worldwide gatherings and the general celebration of all things Hetalia! Because the 24th is now on a weekday this year, the date has been moved to the 22nd so people who have school on the weekdays can still attend!
Please make sure to read and review the Hetalia Day in LA Code of Conduct (see second post) for this event and stay tuned for updates.
And yes, this gathering will in fact be Halloween themed yet again~! We encourage you to get creative and come as your favorite character in Halloween garb, but it's definitely not a requirement. Keep in mind that this gathering is also a potluck, so we would appreciate it if you could bring something to eat and drink.
NO MORE SWEETS, PLEASE.
Games and Contests:
Miss Hetalia Day Pageant
- Time for you to strut your stuff~! There will be a few different awards given for certain categories. Are you the scariest? The silliest? The most creative? Who is the fairest nation of them all? Limited to 30 contestants.
Are You Smarter Than America?
- Do you trust America's judgement? Contestants will be chosen at random. Questions will be on history and geography.
Crumpets to Crumpets
- This is basically Apples to Apples, but with a certain British flair. If you don't know how to play, don't worry. We'll explain it to you before we begin.
"Mein Boot of Bier Fell Over!"
- This game is based on Mr. Daruma Fell Down (Daruma-san ga koronda), a Japanese game that is similar to Red Light, Green Light. Seize Prussia before she finishes saying "Mein boot of bier fell over" and she seizes you herself. This game will be played in rounds until there are six finalists. The winner gets an awesome
prize from Prussia!
Wa Wa Wa World Ondo Flash Mob
- Put on those dancing shoes and start practicing. We're participating in the World Ondo flash mob video! We'll teach and practice the dance a few times to get it down before we record, so don't worry about messing up! Here are some videos to get you started: one
- A model United Nations debate. More info coming soon.
I'm open to more game ideas if you'd like to suggest any!
