Happy May Day!

We saw this Maypole at the NH Renaissance Faire in 2016. A maypole is a 600 year old tradition originating in European folk festivals. Ribbons are attached to the top and a dance is performed. By the end of the dance, a lovely woven pattern covers the pole (if all goes well!) The festival can occur on May Day, Pentecost or Mid-summer.
