An eastern Idaho dance festival has been selected by a national organization as one of the top 100 events scheduled in North America for 1991, Gov. Cecil Andrus announced.

The American Bus Association, an organization of travel industry businesses, notified Andrus that the Idaho International Folk Dance Festival in Rexburg would be listed as one of next year's top events.An association brochure called the festival a "spectacular cultural event that features dance troupes from around the world." The festival is scheduled for July 27 to Aug. 3.

"I congratulate the sponsors of this unique event," Andrus said. "It is a wonderful family and cultural event that adds a very special dimension to Idaho."

The brochure said the top two events for 1991 are the Mount Rushmore Golden Anniversary Celebration in South Dakota and the International Gathering of the Clans in Nova Scotia, Canada.
