A great event is going on this weekend in Balboa Park! If you happen to be in San Diego, you might like to check it out!

The International Folk Dance Spring Festival is being held in the very beautiful Balboa Park Club building, and everyone is invited. The fun event is put on by the International Dance Association of San Diego County.

Anyone who attended the festival today could learn how to Greek dance! Tomorrow, Sunday, you’ll have the opportunity to learn and observe other styles of folk dancing. It’s easy to participate and lots of fun! And it’s a great social activity that provides healthy exercise!

I learned that the International Dance Association of San Diego County is eager to welcome new members. Do you enjoy folk dancing? Do you wish to learn? Are you merely curious and would like to read some more interesting information? Then click here to check out their website! They have numerous classes and special dances throughout the year!

    1. It was built in 1915 for the Panama-California Exposition. Originally it was home to the state of New Mexico’s exhibits. That explains the exterior appearance! In 1935 it was remodeled and enlarged for the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition!
