Basque 101: The Family Style Tour is an hour and a half tour that presents the fascinating story of The Star and first-hand accounts of Elko’s early Basque residents.
Participants will:
• Experience a behind-the-scenes walking tour of The Star, including the upstairs boarding rooms.
• Enjoy family-style learning with interactive presentations of Basque heritage. Learn Basque phrases, games, and dances!
