47th Annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival

Welsh & Hawaiian Language Stories at Talk Story

Hot, hot, hot. Temperatures soared into the 90's once again, but that didn't stop tourists and locals alike from raining (don't we wish) down on the National Mall today for the second to last day of the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Celebrating its 47th year, the Folklife Festival featured a wonderful Hungarian Heritage: Roots to Revival program in addition to the usual fine food and crafts we've grown accustomed to in the past.

Here's a sampling of what we discovered earlier today...
