Round up your friends and book a table for the Explosion of Celebrations taking place on November 2nd at the Estonian House! Help not one or two… but five organizations celebrate their jubilees in a night of fun and entertainment for all ages. No babysitter needed, we have activities for your kids as well! Doors open at 4 p.m. and entertainment starts at 4:30 p.m., dinner is included in the ticket price and the cash bar will be open throughout the festivities.
The Toronto Estonian Kindergarten will be running a face painting station, photo booth with cool costumes, and kids’ corner. The program for the night will feature a theatrical performance by the Toronto Estonian School’s children and youth based on themes from Oskar Luts’ well known film “Kevade” including song and dance numbers. A slideshow will be running during the festivities with photos spanning the long histories of the celebrating organizations. Greetings from honoured guests and other organizations, as well as a formal cake unveiling will also be a part of the activities during the night. Starting at 8:30 p.m., the Toronto Estonian Youth Organization will be organizing a dance that everyone is more than welcome to attend and is sponsored by the Estonian Ecumenical Relief Organization so don’t forget your dancing shoes! Of course there’s also a silent auction running until 8:00 p.m. with several prizes you won’t want to miss out on. Kungla’s folk dancers will be putting on a show as well, and fun Estonian tongue twisters and sing-along directed by Heli Tenno and Liina Purje-Lepik will allow everyone to have a great time. The MC’s for the festivities will be former students of the Estonian Schools Elli Kipper and Toomas Tammark.
