Seeing school festival = 0 yen

I visited some school festivals of senior high schools with my son in September. School festival is an annual event. When school festival is held, senior high schools are open to public. So anyone can see school festivals without charge.

Common activities at the festivals are cafe booth and haunted house. I dropped in booths of school clubs, like biology studying club, chemistry studying club, climbing club. Each club has their demonstration what students do in school time. In my case, I saw photos which showed their hiking trip to mountains. I also see a chemical experimental demonstration by a student.
