Off to the 'World Famous' International Basque Festival...Where?

I am off to the world-famous International Basque Festival in...Boise, Idaho, of course! Boise is home to the largest Basque population in the United States.

Every five years the Basque community organizes the Jaialdi festival in Boise. In 2005, over 30,000 people attended. The celebration that lasts from July 26-August 1, features cultural dances and musical exhibitions as well as sporting tournaments like weightlifting, wood chopping and other competitions indigenous to the Basque people (Photo: londonconstant).

Of course that's not all we have planned...stay tuned.
