While many are planning to travel over the summer, Houston’s
International Club wanted to bring the travel to them with the annual
International Extravaganza. The International Extravaganza is a beloved and
highly-anticipated event at Houston High School.
Students bring in an array of international foods, creating
a global buffet, complete with everything from baklava to madelines to egg
rolls and much more.
The school is also decorated with a variety of flags
adorning the building and cultural displays from many represented countries. One
such display even included a henna table, where students did beautiful henna
designs on patrons.
The event finally culminated in a multi-faceted cultural
showcase featuring multiple countries and regions. There was a taekwando
demonstration, a Korean fan dance, a k-pop routine, a German folk dance, a Hawaiian
hula and more. The show was hilariously hosted by seniors Courtney Noisette and
Mykal Bayne and ended with a fashion show partially student designed that
showcased beautiful traditional garb from around the world.
It was a truly wonderful evening celebrating so much of what
makes Houston and our world unique, and we cannot wait until next year.
