For a little fun and festivity
on Memorial Day Weekend,
there's nothing quite like the excess,
spectacle and humor,
whether street performers
or scheduled appearances
by groups like this one
(more about them later this week)
dancing to live music with a zydeco group ,
(there's my reflection as I admire the earrings)
and general frivolity
of the Northwest Folk Life Festival
now in its 40th year.
It's held at the Seattle Center,
home of the iconic Space Needle.
