Food, music, and kids part of state visit

  • Grades: 3–5, 6–8

When the President and First Lady of Mexico Felipe Calderon and Margarita Zavala recently visited Washington, D.C., President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama held several big parties, including one for kids.

Kid Reporter Nick Berray took a second turn at sampling the cultural cuisine of another country when he attended the Taste of Mexico event at Blair House. He had also attended a similar event called Taste of India in December. Blair House is the official guest residence for the White House and is right across the street from the nation’s most famous address.
