Basque Festival in Las Vegas area a Foodie’s Delight


Members of the Las Vegas Basque Club cook up its annual barbecue.

The Las Vegas Basque festival is known for its wonderful food — paella, barbecued lamb and a delicious salad are always on the menu. Their chorizos are to die for, and their homemade sangria or picon punch are a great addition to the afternoon. This year’s festival on Sunday, Oct. 7 was held outside the Club Fortune Casino in Henderson, near Las Vegas. Gauden Bat dancers from Chino, Calif. performed traditional dances and weightlifter Aitor Narvaiza wowed the crowd with his amazing lifts.
