School is out for more than 2 months of summer vacation, meaning that students will basically have a whole lot of spare time on their hands. But not so fast, says the Banquitas House of Culture because they have several summer programs in line that will keep children and adults of all ages very busy during the holidays.
Starting on July 4th the Banquitas House of Culture will be offering a Cosmetology Course, dance, drumming and percussion classes.
