Mini Folklife Festival equals education and fun

Master Sgt. Tom Veilleux, a 68th Airlift Squadron loadmaster, helps the ladies of the Pretty and Precocious Red Hats, San Antonio Chapter, set up their booth for the 2009 Alamo Wing Mini Folklife Festival. The Red Hats provided guests with cold fruit-punch and hot wings. The Red Hats tied for second with the Lebanese booth for best decor and for first place with the Sabor Latino booth for best costume. 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.
