Basque picnic set for Aug. 13

Friday, August 5, 2011

People from Mountain Home and surrounding communities will relive the traditions, culture and language of the Basque people during an annual festival scheduled for Aug. 13.

The 51st Annual Basque Picnic begins at noon at the pelota, or outdoor racquetball court, in the city's Basque Park next to the Bengeochea Hotel.

Originally held in Carl Miller Park, local Basques plan the yearly celebrations around the birthday of St. San Ignacio, the patron saint of Basques.
