May Day


How many of you celebrate May Day? Well, I’m going to a May Day celebration of sorts tomorrow. Called Old Dover Days, it’s actually more a celebration of my home state’s colonial heritage as well as a spring festival. I’ve been going to Old Dover Days since before I can remember and I do try to make it every year. There’s a parade (I’m corny, but I love parades), Maypole Dancing, historical reenacters from all time periods, shriners, classic cars, high school bands, crafts, vendors and all sorts of happenings on the The Green. Hopefully, I will be able to snap some fun pics to share with you Monday.

Here’s to us all having a great weekend!

    I celebrate May Day, I think it’s one of the more fun holidays of the year. My May Day celebration usually includes a bonfire after the sunset and a lot of food, which is one of my favorite parts.

    I grew up dancing around a May pole every spring at my elementary school! Thanks for sharing…brought back good memories.

    We have a big May Day celebration here in Salt Lake every year, complete with a huge maypole that stays in the ground all year. Tons of people come and there is feasting, dancing, and revelry. Watching the snow come down, I’m starting to really worry about this year’s celebration!
