2013 Texas Folklife Festival

Following are pictures from Saturday night (June 8) at the 2013 Texas Folklife Festival at the Institute of Texan Cultures in downtown San Antonio. There didn’t seem to be as many attendees or participants this year as in year’s past. Perhaps the heat or high school graduations kept people away. The lack of crowds made it easy to get a seat and enjoy music and dancing while sampling a variety of delicious food. I enjoyed food from the Vietnamese, Wendish, Pakistani and Japanese booths.
