This year is the 40th anniversary of the Texas Folklife Festival held at the Institute of Texan Cultures. If you want to sample a Nigerian Suya, cool off with an icy horchata, learn to swing your hips with a hula halau, find out how to weave a basket, bake bread, take a picture with an ornery ol' cowpoke, or sit back and enjoy traditional ethnic Lebanese, Ukranian, Korean, Italian, Philippine, Chilean, Hawaiian, Turkish, German, Chinese, American Indian, Tejano, Peruvian folk dances and music - then this is the spot to be. The celebration continues through Sunday.
