Smithsonian Folklife Festival!

UPDATE #2: Happy Independence Day everyone! It is going to be hot so please bring water and wear a hat or sunscreen. Bring cash with you since there are many delicious food and beverage vendors. I will have a red balloon with me all day so look for that when trying to find us. You can reach me at[masked] but TEXT will be best since it will be noisy. Hope to see you there!
UPDATE #1: Here is a timetable of the demonstrations I would like to visit: 11:00: Thai American Cooking 11:45: Tradtional Music and Dance: Thai American 12:30: Tradition and Innovation: Japanese American 1:15: Chinese American Cooking 2:00: Lunch 3:30: Walk around the Festival Marketplace 5:00: Closing Ceremony at Asian Fusions -- The Smithsonian Folklife Festival begins this week! It is a free annual festival on the mall and this year they are highlighting Mexico and Asian Pacific Americans! July 5th is the last day of the festival so if you can not join us I highly recommend going before it closes. I'm hoping most people will have the day off and would like to join me in experiencing the different dances of the Asian cultures and also take in some cooking lessons. Here is the link to the schedule for July 5th...
http://www.festival.s... Join me for an hour or all day! Feel free to join me at anytime during the day as well. I will send out my phone number to everyone so we can meet up. Here is a map of the festival...
http://www.festival.s... For more information on the festival go to their website at...
http://www.festival.s... Smithsonian is the nearest Metro stop (Orange/Blue Line). I suggest Metro / cabbing if you can. I also recommend using wmata for travel planning. There will be delays due to track maintenance please give yourself enough time for travel.
