Please join us at the Festival del Maiz this weekend, July 25-27, at the Lourdes School on the left-hand side of the road to Sabalito! This event is the school’s fund raiser for the year and it will be filled with delicious local food, games, prizes, music, dancing and other events!
Friday evening starting at 6, the event will open with a coronation as one of the students is crowned King of the Corn Festival. On Saturday from 1:00 pm on, the fun continues with games, prizes, activities, food and music. That night will feature a Dance Exhibit with several different kinds of Latin dancing and North American jitterbug and swing starting at 6:00 pm. On Sunday, the festival continues throughout the day and will feature a Marimba Band at 1:00 pm.
All by themselves, the chorreados (a typical local food at this time of year, these are pancakes made with ground young corn) will be worth the trip — you can have them sweetened with syrup, doused with sour cream or just the way they are = DELICIOUS!
Students in the 5th grade at Escuela Lourdes have just finished the ‘Detectives de Pajaros’ course taught by Roni Chernin. Please come to support this wonderful school!
