After a two-day break and a relentless overnight thunderstorm, the Folklife Festival returned to the National Mall. Thanks to the efforts of our Smithsonian colleagues and the National Park Service staff, the Festival site was able to open, despite damage to the Ralph Rinzler Concert Stage, for another day of bridge building, weaving, cooking, and more.
