Folklorama50 is ending tonight!
It was a great success this year, as it has been over the past.
The pavilions were filled with happy visitors of all ages, enthusiastic and helpful volunteers, interesting and informative cultural displays, lively and varied entertainment, and delicious, authentic food.
On to the next 50 wonderful years, Folklorama!
If you’d like to sample some Folklorama dishes, here is a list of the posts I’ve done over the past months which have the recipes used during Folklorama in 1980.
