Celebrating Santa Ageda in Boise
Basque language students in Boise are extending an invitation to anyone who would like to participate and join them on February 3rd at 7pm at the Basque Museum to celebrate Santa Ageda. They will provide the song lyrics as well as sticks, and no prior experience or knowledge of the songs is required. Bring your family and friends and wear white and blue if possible, as these are the traditional colors worn for this celebration. If you can't attend on the 3rd, there is another opportunity on Thursday February 6th at 10:30am to celebrate Santa Ageda with the Boise'ko Ikastola (1915 University Drive, Boise ID).
