Our Festival Flickr Galleries are back! Here is a wonderful selection of images posted on Flickr of the opening day of the 2012 Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Take a look!
You can upload and share your own images to the 2012 Smithsonian Folklife Festival Flickr Group here. We pick a few of our favorite visitor photos or videos every day, and take them to a wider audience by featuring them on our Festival blog.
Twitter users, follow our Flickr Top Ten galleries with #FlickrTopTen and follow the Festival with #2012Folklife.

Returning this year to moderate the Flickr Group and select the galleries is Ariel Fielding, a former Folklife Festival Fellow in Community and Online Engagement. A lifelong photographer, Ariel built her first pinhole camera at the age of six, and learned to use a darkroom at the same age. She works as a performing arts producer in Toronto.
