The annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival is taking place on the National Mall and wraps up this weekend.

This year the fair features performances and cuisine from Mexico and Asia Pacific, and a very special exhibit highlighting the behind the scene happenings at the Smithsonian.

Jim Deutsch is the curator for the Festival.

He says the Smithsonian Inside and out exhibit shows just how vast the museum really is.
