My Hometown – Smithsonian Folklife Festival

I spent the day with friends at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. It was an awesome day for it. Not to hot and not to humid.  This year the Folklife Festival is featuring China and Kenya.

You could probably spend an entire day on each. There is so much to do and see. You’re allowed to get up and and personal with some of the artisans. I really don’t know where to begin with telling you about the Festival. Some things you just have to experience.

To learn about the history of the Festival click HERE.

Here are some pics and a video I took. I hope you enjoy.

Not sure about who they are, but beautiful nonetheless.
