We have been invited once again to dance circles this Saturday, November 4th, at the Garden Kitchen's Desert Foods Festival.

We have been participating in their festival for couple of years now and it is a very fun event with the opportunity to learn how to make delicious food from ingredients which grow naturally in our Sonora desert! Free samples and recipes included!

We dance out in the open so don't forget your sunscreen and a hat! Also, we are dancing on concrete, so be mindful of that when picking what shoes to wear!

We are meeting for a carpool at 10:30am this Saturday north of the McClelland Hall (Eller business college - 1130 E Helen Street - there is a parking lot on Helen Street).
If you have a car please bring it so that we can carpool to the Garden Kitchen (2205 S 4th Ave) together.
For those of you who are going straight there, we will start dancing circles at 11am.

If you are interested in coming or have any questions, please leave a comment below.

See you all there!
