Friday is the start of the annual San Inacio festival in downtown Boise. The event is named after Saint Ignatious of Loyola, the patron saint of the Basques. The free three-day event runs through Sunday, and as always there will be lots of dancing, food and live music. 


If you visit the Basque Block to check out the festivities this weekend, you might want to consider stopping into the Basque Museum where a recently opened exhibit is on display. Patty Miller is the curator of the exhibit, called "Inner Strength: Portraits of Basque Women." She's also the director of the Basque Community History Project.
