Maypole dancers, including many local children, in several colorful and frolicking figures before the final weave.

The Maypole Parade & Dance took place on April 30. Community folks gathered early to make wreaths, finish costumes, and prep puppets. The parade started at the Festival Barn, marched through Studio Row to Keith House and ended by the Maypole. Then the Morris Dancers entertained the crowd with some lively dance numbers. Happy Spring!
