Mexican folk dance performance Saturday

The Righetti High School Marimba Band and Ballet Folklorico are hosting their 36th annual "Big Show" in Santa Maria this weekend.

The show features students performing traditional folk dance from five regions of Mexico.

The students began learning the new dances back in June.

"It's just fun to keep the traditions alive and it's just very lively, happy stuff to do and people enjoy it so it's a lot of fun," said Righetti High senior Dulce Vargas.

The group has done more than 1,500 performances since 1975.

The show will be at Santa Maria's Ethel Pope Auditorium at 7:30 tomorrow night.

Tickets will be available at the door for $12.
