Mini Folklife Festival equals education and fun

Right, Airman 1st Class Anthony Molina, 433rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron maintenance specialist, samples Arroz con Andules, a typical Puerto Rican dish made with rice and peas. Tech. Sgt. Jerry Olguin, also from the 433rd AMXS, enjoys a bowl of Menudo, a spicy Mexican soup made with tripe and hominy. The Sabor Latino booth offered guests foods from 14 Latin-American countries during the 2009 Alamo Wing Mini Folklife Festival. The Sabor Latino booth swept the competition, winning first place in best decor, best costume and best food categories. The annual festival began in 2001 and is put on by Airmen from 433rd Airlift Wing. Like the large-scale version happening in San Antonio later in the week, it is designed to raise and promote cultural awareness and appreciation by incorporating transcendental elements such as food, music and art in a family-friendly environment.
