On February 24, 2005, BaFSA celebrated Estonian Independence Day at the Indiana Memorial Union building, Indiana University at Bloomington. Here are some scenes from the choir performance of Estonian folk songs, and the Estonian/Latvian instrumental ensemble "Siilikesed," playing instrumental songs and dances of Estonian origin. The students of Estonian teacher Piibi-Kai Kivik recited poems, and paid a tribute to former and present Estonian professors at Indiana University.

After the formal program, the guests at Estonian Independence Day could sample many different kinds of Estonian and American foods. Beer, wine, and conversation brought the evening to an enjoyable finish.
