May Day is Almost Here!

MayDay_RickTangLORESGeyserville's favorite spring event--the May Day Celebration--will be held on:

Sunday, May 6th
Hoffman Grove Picnic Grounds
Noon to 4:00 pm

This home-town event will have something for everyone! MUSIC, KID’S GAMES, GREAT FOOD, LOCAL WINES & FAMILY FUN 

May Day began in 1925, as a day to come together as a community and celebrate the wonders of spring. Teachers and students from all the surrounding schoolhouses were represented. Children would dress up as fairy tale characters and participate in pony rides and cake walks. In the past, the local firefighters would have water fights and raise money for new equipment. Sometimes you would find a Quilt Raffle or Grape Box Derby Cars racing down the hill next to the old Hoffman Grove. Some traditions remain to this day: that May Pole Dance and the crowning of the May Day Queen are still eagerly anticipated. 

This year, the May Day Queen and her court, from the high school, will be at 1:30. The original May Pole from 1925 will be the focal point of the May Pole Dance by Geyserville 3rd Grade classes at 2:00. Middle school participants in Ballet Folklorico will perform, as well.

Enjoy LIVE music, an inflated Jump House, Rock Climbing wall, and face painting!  In addition, there will be Geyserville History display boards, and an egg-toss competition. Wine and beer will be available from the Geyserville Chamber of Commerce to accompany all the tasty eats and the Kawanis rib cook-off and competition. 

All precedes benefit community non-profit groups. Don’t miss this opportunity to participate in a time-honored small town American Tradition. Come out and meet your neighbors! May 6th from 12 to 4 pm. ADMISSION IS FREE
