Starts at the Port of Friday Harbor parking lot

Wooden clogs, colorful serapes and "old man" masks accent the Dance of the Elders procession through Friday Harbor and ending at St. Francis Church.. The dozen or so dancers make a distinctive clacking sound as they perform a variety of folk dance routines to mariachi music. This dance is an ancient pre-Columbian ritual.
