12:00 PM House of Peru Lawn Program The House of Peru lawn program takes place every year with entertainment by folkloric dancers, who will fascinate the audience with their beautiful dances in colorful costumes.

They will serve typical Peruvian food: Arroz con Pollo (rice chicken), Papa a la Huancaina (potatoes with creamy-cheese sauce) and Picarones (fluffy yucca-yam doughnuts served with molasses syrup). To accompany these delicious plates, there is nothing better than the Peruvian national soda: Inca Kola. Usually the Peruvian menu at this event will be the same as our House's menu at December Nights.
