May Day 2015
Our 10th May Day celebration was a roaring success. Three months worth of preparation made for a great day: Face Painters International (M.I. Local), the Wand & Garland Makers Alliance, members of the ATBU (Amateur Treat Bakers Union) and various well known members of Raffle Sellers Anonymous really pulled it out of the hat, and that was just the commercial side of the operation. As for entertainment and diversion for the masses in attendance, there was the Second Giant Puppet, the Dance on Mayne troupe, The Mayne Island Singers and the Drum Circle. One of the charms of the day, year in & year out, is the "look" of the crowd - everyone who was able glued, pasted or sewed wild and wonderful outfits just for the day.
