Guelaguetza 2006

On Sept. 9, more than 350 people sipped sweet hibiscus drinks, tasted tamales and danced in the sun at Guelaguetza 2006, a free, daylong festival of the music, dance, costumes and food of Oaxaca, Mexico. The fourth annual Oaxacan fiesta, produced by the Seattle-Oaxaca Fiesta Committee, took place in the open-air amphitheater at Dr. Blanche Lavizzo Walkway Park in Seattle's Central District. Guelaguetza is an indigenous word for an annual celebration featuring cultural groups from Oaxaca.
