Korea Day Colorado and the Kpop contest!

My friend and I went to the Korea Day Colorado festival and had a blast. It was a fun event, held in the Infinity Park Event Center. They gave out free cups of noodles, and offered free samples. We even sampled a Korean wine. It was a lot of fun to watch the Taekwondo demonstrations which were done to music, including the soundtrack for Pirates of the Carribean and the music from the Korean drama Kingdoms of the Four Winds. After Taekwondo, a music demonstration of traditional drums and drum dancing was shown.
After the traditional music, it was time for the Kpop contest hosted by KBS (A Korean Drama Station!)
Many of the performers danced to some well known Kpop songs and one even sang! It was cool listening to some of my favorite Kpop songs played on a loud speaker system. After the contest, a well known Colorado Korean band performed called the Appa Band. They had some good songs, and people started dancing. 
All in all it was a fun experience, and I was proud of much Korean I managed to recognize and understand.
