    The first weekend of the Folklife Festival came to a close today, welcoming members of the Caribbean community in Washington, D.C., to the On the Move program and a full house for each performance in the Circus Arts Big Top. Take a look through our photography team’s best shots from today, and add your own to our Flickr group.

    The Festival continues through Monday and Tuesday, getting an early start on Independence Day activities on the National Mall. Tomorrow you can watch a match of Chinese American 9-Man Volleyball, meet circus painter Karen E. Gersch in the Marketplace, and hear Hawaiian slack-key guitar and ukulele player Ledward Kaapana—among eighty-one other sessions! See the full schedule.
