May Day in Geyserville

This weekend was beautiful and warm and we celebrated this gorgeous spring at the local May Day Festival. One of my favorite things about living in a small town is community events like this. We met some friends and shared a potluck picnic, some laughs and some very yummy chocolate cherry cookies.

One of the highlights of this year's festival was the dance around the Maypole, performed by a local third-grade class. I've never seen a maypole dance before, but this one was exactly as I'd imagined it would be: children dancing in a field, weaving these beautiful ribbons around and around the pole.

The kids seemed to love it...

And this is how the Maypole looked when all the dancing was over. Pretty, no?

Our little monkey especially enjoyed the dancing by Ballet Folklorico...

Ahhh, small town living.
