You guys, the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival starts tomorrow. I KNOW, it crept up on me too, usually because that’s usually about when DC gets really hot and nasty and we’ve already been dealing with that for weeks.

This year’s Festival focuses on the cultures of Mexico, and Asian/Pacific Americans, as well on the actual work done by staff of the Smithsonian to preserve cultural and natural treasures. There will also be some special events focusing on Haiti and the Apollo Theater.

My favorite part of the Festival is always the performances, so this year is going to combine some of my favorite things- mariachi, martial arts demonstrations, and Asian/Pacific dance. I’ll be there with my camera, and hope you all will share your photos with us in the Flickr pool.
