After the Stamp Mill, get a hot dog from Pat the Hot Dog Lady, and stay for the lecture which begins at 2:00. Today’s speaker will be renowned Zapotec weaver Porfiro Gutierrez, talking about “Zapotec Culture”. This will be the kick-off for our annual three-day “Magic of Mexican Artistry” event, in which we will have artisans from Mexico on the grounds demonstrating their crafts and selling their products.
