IC was so much fun this year and had so many memorable moments! I am going to count down my favorite moments of IC starting from 5 and ending at 1…

5. Shabbat

Shabbat during IC was so much fun! I attended a Noah Kahan-themed Shabbat, which was extremely meaningful. I also took pictures of Shabbat with my friends and ate a nice meal with everyone!

4. Opening Ceremonies

Opening ceremonies allowed for the centennial convention to begin with a BANG!! There were multiple important speakers, delegation run-throughs, and even Flo Rida performed!

3. Meeting celebrities

There were multiple opportunities to meet various celebrities through this convention. Some that I was able to meet were Ben Soffer and Josh Peck (pictured below), Skylar Astin, Brett Gelman, and more! It was so cool to be able to meet these people, and it was definitely a highlight of my experience at IC!

2. Concert/Block Party

The concert and block party were UNREAL!! During the concert, Noa Kirel and Two Friends performed. The block party consisted of MULTIPLE different things, such as a wrestling tournament, food booths, a blow-up game booth, and so much more! It was so much fun to be able to dance with my friends all night at the concert and walk around the block party with them!

1. Universal

Although it was raining during our time at Universal Islands of Adventure, I feel that it made the experience even more fun! We were able to hang out in the park, go on multiple different and fun rides, and have fun with our friends! This was my favorite part about IC because it is so different from other sightseeing days of past ICs, such as Dallas, last year.

There were so many more fun and amazing things happening during this year's IC that were not mentioned above, so if you have any questions about what else we did and why IC is so much fun, talk to your friends! I promise they will say the same things as me and tell you to go on IC next year! IC is such a great experience, and I would recommend that everyone attend it in the future!
